TRI-CITY AREA — Nuptials behind bars are no longer a reality for a Lapeer couple captured in Wyoming. At least, Sheriff Ron Kalanquin won't be officiating.

His offer to marry Elizabeth Bruman, 23 and Aaron Holt, 24 drew worldwide media attention after the fugutive couple allegedly used some of the cash they took during a Sept. armed robbery in Deerfield Twp. to purchase wedding rings.

Kalanquin said he'd marry the couple if they'd peacefully turn themselves into police. That offer no longer applies since the pair were arrested Friday night in Cheyenne, Wyoming.

"This is a 'no deal,'" Kalanquin said Monday from his office.

The sheriff's department received information that the pair were in the Cheyenne area Friday evening. Cheyenne police scoped out hotels and motels but finally spotted their get-away car, a green Pontiac Bonneville, in the parking lot of a homeless shelter.

"They saw the car and set up surveillance," Kalanquin said.

Holt eventually went to the car, followed by Bruman, at which point police approached the pair and proceeded to arrest them without incident around 9:30 p.m.

After robbing the Lapeer County Bank and Trust branch on Sept. 19, investigators discovered that they used the money to purchase rings, pay back rent and hire an attorney in regards to Bruman's custody fight for her children.

Obviously, they used what remained to finance their trip out west. They are expected to be extradited back to Michigan later this week.

Kalanquin's offer during a press conference garnered attention from media outlets stretching from the United Kingdom—BBC World News—to newspapers and tv stations from across the state and nation.
