The World Series of Poker Championship bracelet that was stolen from Jonathan Duhamel during a home invasion last year has been recovered in Montreal.
The bracelet was found in the Ville-Marie tunnel in Montreal by street sweeping employee Denis Theriault. Theriault was operating a vehicle that swept the bracelet up among other pieces of trash in the tunnel.
Duhamel was reportedly ecstatic to have his bracelet back, even though it was severely damaged when it was found.
Late last year a group of robbers invaded Duhamel's Quebec home, who beat the poker champ and stole jewelry and a sizable amount of cash. Most of the cash and personal property belonging to Duhamel has been recovered, and his ex-girlfriend and others implicated in the crime are waiting to be sentenced.
Wow, his ex-girlfriend was in on it? I'm not sure how they found the bracelet if a machine swept it up. Do they sort through whatever they pick up?
Here is a photo of the bracelet that is gorgeous. The ex girlfriend was an accomplice to the break in.
That bracelet sure is slick. I heard its worth $40,000! The street sweeping crew must go through what they get up. Maybe it goes through a recycle process or something and that's how they found it.
Imagine the damage to it though!
Wow! I had no idea it was worth that much.
