Swallowed diamond ring shows up as evidence in US
A would-be jewel thief who swallowed a 1.5 carat diamond ring has been forced by nature to give up the evidence, Florida police said.
A Clearwater Police Department spokesman has said that Mary Flowers, 38, was arrested last week after a surveillance tape showed her putting the $20,000 ring in her mouth at a jewellery store in a mall.
Flowers denied swallowing the ring until an X-ray showed it was inside her.
cass, ick ick ick... I was going to eat soon. well at least police got their evidence. I wonder if they flipped a coin on who was to pick it up.
