Man caught trying to smuggle diamonds in his underpants

Police in Brazil’s remote Amazon state of Rondonia have arrested a man who had 666 rough diamonds hidden in his underpants, Reuters reports.

The diamonds, worth about $200,000, were apparently smuggled out of an Indian reservation of the Cinta Larga tribe in Rondonia, a state police spokesman reportedly said Tuesday.

Police stopped the 38-year-old man during a routine road check and became suspicious of his nervousness, Reuters reports. After officers found equipment that measure diamonds in his car, they searched the man and found the diamonds in his underpants.
