OREM, Utah -- Two people were arrested on suspicion of felony theft after police said one of them swallowed a stolen ring in an attempt to hide it.
Police say an X-ray clearly showed the ring inside the stomach of 25-year-old Christina Schlegel.
Investigators say 29-year-old Bryan Ford had been examining a ring worth several thousand dollars at a Zales jewelry store about 45 miles south of Salt Lake City, when he allegedly left with it.
Police say he was chased by an employee as he got into a car driven away by Schlegel. Officers stopped the car and arrested both suspects a short time later.
Police say they were baffled as to the ring's whereabouts until the X-ray of Schlegel's stomach was taken.
