was able to propose on Tuesday night as planned.Thanks to a fast-acting Good Samaritan, Steve Buice
That evening, Buice was gearing himself up to propose. He was with a friend in a San Diego Home Depot parking lot, getting wired with a microphone — he wanted to record himself popping the question to girlfriend Josefina Karpecki — when he put his jacket on the trunk of a car next to him.
Moments later, the owner of the car drove away, taking Buice's jacket with him.
Inside the jacket's pockets: Buice's wallet and the diamond ring he was about to give his girlfriend.
About 20 minutes later, the owner of the car walked up to Buice, waving a black jacket at him.
"Then he says, 'I have your wallet and your diamond ring,'" Buice told 10News.
Buice's friend recorded the ring reunion on camera.
"Unbelievable! He found us! It's about seven minutes before I ask her to marry me," Buice said on camera.
