City officials incorrectly stated on Tuesday that Crime Stoppers of Wichita/Sedgwick County is offering its standard $2,500 reward for the recovery of Danielle Zimmerman’s wedding ring.

Gordon Bassham, executive director of the Wichita Crime Commission, said that the reward was offered for information leading to the arrest of the persons responsible for robbing the Wichita woman.

Zimmerman, 43, was robbed in the first moments after she suffered an aneurysm in the drive-through lane of a Taco Bell at 3725 E. Harry.

Zimmerman’s truck crashed into a speaker in the drive-through after she fell ill. Before emergency crews could arrive, thieves stole her purse, credit cards, cellphone and wedding ring.

Two 19-year-old men – Daquantrius Shaquill Johnson and Quanique Dontrell Thomas-Hameen – were arrested Friday night after a Crime Stoppers tip.

A third man suspected in the case, identified in records as 19-year-old Keith Byron Hickles Jr., turned himself in on an unrelated probation violation at the Sedgwick County probation office at 525 N. Main on Monday afternoon, Lt. Doug Nolte said.
