Woman swallows diamond ring in Florida

A Clearwater, Fla., woman pleaded guilty on Monday to swallowing a 1.5 ct. diamond ring at a jewelry store and will serve one year of probation, The Associated Press reports.

Mary Denise Flowers, 38, swallowed the ring at Littman Jewelers, Clearwater, in December, the AP reports. A surveillance camera caught the act.

The ring was later recovered in a jailhouse commode, and will be sent to Littman Jewelers’ corporate headquarters in Oregon to be melted down.

Flowers, who did not have a previous criminal record, was also ordered Monday to pay fines and court costs totaling $1,090, court records reportedly state.

The judge withheld a formal finding of adjudication, meaning Flowers will have a clean record if she completes probation without violation, the AP reports.
