PHOENIX – A UPS worker is accused of stealing a package that contained a $160,000 diamond and then traded it for $20 of marijuana.
Walter Earl Morrison, 20, was working for UPS while unloading a plane in the cargo section of Sky Harbor Airport when he stole the diamond and stuffed the package under his shirt.
Morrison firsr thought that the package contained cash but instead he found a diamond. “Any single stone over $100,000 is an expensive stone,” House of Diamonds owner Brent Taubman said when asked about pricey diamonds.
An officer told KNXV, “That’s not a good deal.” Well it is certainly not a good deal.
The stolen diamond was recovered later and then it was delivered back to the rightful customer, according to a UPS spokesperson. UPS also fired Morrison and authorities charged Morrison with felony theft.
