    X-ray proved robber's guilt

    A man has been arrested in Brazil after an x-ray proved he stole a woman's necklace.

    The man snatched the necklace from the neck of a woman in the city of Belo Horizonte and ran off.

    The victim later recognised her attacker in the street and alerted a police officer, reports Folha de Sao Paulo.

    The man did not have the necklace with him but the police officer suspected he'd swallowed it.

    He took him to a local hospital for an x-ray which clearly showed the necklace in his stomach.

    You know if this was the US, they'd have to wait to get a search warrant and a court order to force the guy to submit to an x-ray and then they'd have to wait until all the appeals were heard and by that time, the necklace would have been flushed!
