A Schuylkill County woman says her engagement ring is missing after she attempted to send it to the maker for maintenance.
According to information from State Police in Schuylkill Haven, a 42-year-old Pottsville woman says she dropped off her 14K white gold diamond engagement ring at the Dollar General in Cressona Mall earlier this month to get picked up by FedEx.
That store is one of several FedEx OnSite pickup spots throughout Schuylkill County, where customers can drop off items to get picked up later by a FedEx driver.
The Pottsville woman was sending the ring back to the company from which it was purchased for maintenance, according to police. The ring was scanned as accepted at the Dollar General store but it still hasn’t been scanned or picked up by FedEx.
And apparently no one knows where the ring is now.
Police say the ring is valued at more than $3,500.

WOW. First off, I would have gone to an official FedEx drop off location where they would give you a printed receipt. Since it was a $$, $$$ or $$$$ item.
However, I too use the Dollar Store drop off option. I get it, sometimes we are too dang busy to be driving all over PA! FedEx will pick things up at your house, but again, if you are too busy, you are not there.
Dollar General always asks for a phone number or email, and send you a text or note saying you dropped the carton along with the tracking number. I hope she at least has that confirmation in hand!! And I hope DG has the security tape from the day she was in.

They know exactly what happened to the ring. The box it was in was mistaken for a box they receive in the store and put with the trash. The multiple times they were in contact, they couldn’t even keep the price of the ring the same. Though they were too stupid to get insurance on a supposedly expensive ring, Dollar General helped them put in a claim to get reimbursed.
