Not much to this story, but it's Friday afternoon, so enjoy: Walter Earl Morrison, 20, allegedly stole a $160,000 diamond from a UPS cargo plane in Phoenix, Ariz., then traded it for a $20 bag of weed.
That's it, pretty much! What a dummy! Morrisson, a former UPS employee, was working on the tarmac at Sky Harbor Airport when he swiped the jewel. He was arrested and fired from his job, and the diamond was returned to its intended recipient.
The local ABC outlet, in an effort to pad out the story, interviewed a local diamond-seller about the stone. His analysis: "Any single stone over $100,000 is an expensive stone," and trading one such stone for a gram or two of pot is "not a good deal." Hmm.
