(Newser) – They might have gotten away with it, if it wasn't for those pesky X-rays: Police in Orem, Utah, who pulled over a man suspected of stealing a ring worth thousands of dollars last Friday eventually discovered it in his passenger's belly, reports the Deseret News. Bryan Ford, 30, and Christina Schlegel, 25, were taken to a police station and sent cops seeking the ring on "several wild goose chases" before an X-ray revealed that Schlegel had swallowed it when the pair were first pulled over, according to Tucson News Now. Both have been charged with felony theft.
