UPS worker steals pricey diamond, trades it for $20 bag of marijuana


Walter Earl Morrison thought he stumbled upon a package of cash while unloading a cargo plane at his UPS job in Phoenix, Arizona. Morrison took the packages and hid it under his shirt.

The package didn’t take contain cash, but there was a $160,000 diamond inside. Morrison didn’t have any idea of the diamond’s worth or how to get rid of it. So instead of seeking a jeweler on the black market, Morrison decided to unload the stolen item at the first opportunity.

Morrison met with a marijuana supplier and traded the $160,000 diamond for a $20 bag of weed. The police were eventually able to locate the marijuana supplier and the diamond ring. The ring was delivered to the owner.

Morrison was arrested and charged with felony theft. He has been fired by UPS.

    just wondering how the police worked so hard to recover a diamond but can’t figure out who is shooting these black men down in the streets, and also, what a dumbazz, losing your job over twenty dollars and then spending time in jail where you wish you had some kind of escape drug while you are being raped… wow.
