Accused Thief Swallows $7,000 Ring
AP
HOLLIS, N.H. (Feb. 13) - A house painter accused of taking a $7,000 diamond engagement ring from the condo he was working at apparently swallowed the evidence during a break from questioning at the police station - and it was caught on tape, police said Tuesday.

Kenny Narron, 44, of Richlands, N.C., was charged with theft and falsifying evidence. Doctors had to perform emergency surgery to get the 1.2-carat ring out. Narron was arraigned from his hospital bed.


Police say the ring had been hidden under a mattress in a condo in Merrimack that Narron had been hired to paint last month. The owner said he was hiding the ring for his brother, so his brother''s girlfriend wouldn''t see it until the time was right.


But the owner said one day, his 16-year-old son came home to find Narron coming out of the master bedroom, according to a police affidavit.


"The ring was kept under his mattress along with the paperwork ... he discovered his mattress askew and when he checked for the ring, he found it missing," the affdavit said.


Narron was questioned at the Hollis Police Department. When investigators left the room for a few minutes to make a few calls, a security camera in the room showed Narron swallowing the ring and putting a white jewelry box in a drawer. Police also said they came across torn up paperwork for the diamond.


"I''m not sure what goes through people''s minds when you''re in public and there''s cameras everywhere, but yeah, it is on tape," Lt. James Sartell said.

Ira, are you saying that mine was the only right answer or are there many right answers? I misspelled "committed" out of sloppiness above. My apologies, everyone.

Sorry for any threadjack. The example you list was merely vividly and readily in my mind. This may happen every day for all I know, so I won''t pretent to have a "right" answer. But, I was wondering if "our" answer was in many of our minds.

not to mention who wants a ring after it''s been surgically removed from someone else''s intestine!!! EW! Poor girl, that''s the story she gets to tell when people ask about it!

If I were the lady receiving this ring I think I''d prefer surgical removal rather than the other logical way that it might be retrieved under the circumstances...

I thought everyone knew that swallowing evidence is a bad idea. Nevermind at the police station on camera. Anyone who watches any TV knows that the observe you the whole time. And of couse never swallow something hard with pointy edges, knife, metal, diamonds etc.

Poor future wife though. Guess she now knows her BF was prepared to pop the question. If I were the BF I''d think about returning that ring for another one.
