WOODBURY, N.Y. (WPIX)—More than dozens of people who attended a Long Island wedding over the weekend were left stranded after thieves stole keys from the valet station during the reception, according to Nassau County police.
The incident occurred Saturday between 10:30 p.m. and 11 p.m. at the Woodbury Country Club located on Jericho Turnpike.
The groom -- who is a police officer -- along with many of the guests who are also cops, were shocked to hear what had happened.
Nassau County police said roughly 55 sets of keys were missing from the valet service's board. According to reports, Steven Squitiro, the club's general manager, claims a car rolled up while his employees were redirecting cones and stole the entire box of keys.
People who traveled from Pennsylvania and other place were forced to find other modes of transportation to make it home. However, the staff at the county club did agree to cover the cost of cabs for many of the guests.
A police spokesperson said the department's Second Squad is investigating the case as a petty larceny.
