A man proposed to his girlfriend with a stolen engagement ring - the girlfriend said yes, but the ring landed him in custody, police in the US said.

Police in Vermont said 25-year-old Ryan Jarvis is charged with stealing the £2,000 ring from a jewellery store.

WCAX-TV reports that Jarvis was looking at jewellery when he asked to see the white gold solitaire ring on Monday afternoon.

Police say they received tips that led to a Facebook posting by Jarvis' girlfriend, in which she showed off the ring. Police say she didn't know the ring was stolen.
