Doctors extract stolen diamond
Police on Sunday retrieved a 10-million-baht (approx. $300kUS) stolen diamond from a Chinese woman, who swallowed it after stealing it from a jewelery fair after swapping the real one for a fake one.
She was given laxatives on Friday night when she was detained at Pak Kret police station in Nonthaburi to retrieve the gemstone. The effort failed.
Doctors at the hospital also failed to retake the gem stone on Saturday and decided to use pliers to retrieve it with the suspect's consent. If the operation to use the pliers to retrieve the diamond had failed, doctors had planned to have her undergo surgery.
Don't suppose she will try that again...
