CHARLOTTE COUNTY, FL - Kurt Prill says he went to GATORZ bar and grill on Tamiami Trail for lunch on Monday. Prill says while sitting at the bar his pinkey ring, valued at more than 56 thousand dollars, slipped off of his finger and rolled on the floor. While patrons and restaurant staff looked for the ring, Prill says one man wasn't helping at all. Prill says video surveillance from the restaurant's cameras showed why. Prill says Brian Cooney put his foot on the ring while everyone was searching and later pocketed the valuable ring. Charlotte County Deputies went to Cooney's home where he admitted having the ring and returned it to law enforcement. He was arrested and taken to the Charlotte county jail where he is being held on 25 thousand dollar bail.
