Officer Edmund McDowell used his metal detector to locate ring on a beach; this is the second time he has done so.
Fire Island, NY - June 18, 2018 - A Suffolk County police officer located a lost engagement ring at a beach in Fire Island on Sunday, June 17, 2018.
A Pennsylvania woman, who was visiting Fire Island, called police on June 16 after she lost her engagement ring. Marine Bureau Police Officer Robert Warrington responded and searched the home where she was staying at, and Atlantique Beach but did not find the ring, valued at more than $20,000. Officer Warrington asked Marine Bureau Police Officer Edmund McDowell to bring McDowell’s personal metal detector to work today.
Officer McDowell, who was assisted by the woman’s friend, set up a grid pattern around where the woman was sitting at Atlantique Beach. After approximately 10 minutes of searching, the metal detector set off and the officer located the ring in the sand at approximately 11:30 a.m. The woman’s friend will deliver the ring to its owner in Pennsylvania tonight.
This is the second time Officer McDowell used his metal detector to locate someone’s missing ring on a beach.
