Last week, 20 year old UPS worker Walter Earl Morrison was arrested for stealing a diamond worth $160,000 and trading it for weed. While unloading packages at Sky Harbor Airport, Morrison took what he thought was a package of money by stuffing it under his shirt so that it’d go unnoticed when he left for the day. When he realized it wasn’t money, just a diamond he found someone who would take the rock and traded it for $20 of weed. The diamond was eventually recovered thanks to some UPS workers who contacted the police after noticing the package was missing. Shortly after police showed up at Morrison’s home ready to search for the diamond in question and during the shakedown Morrison confessed to taking the diamond and trading it for pot. The diamond has been returned to it’s owner and Morrison was charged with felony theft and was also fired from his job at UPS.
This story is just too funny to me! It’s filled with so many fails: stealing from your job and then trading a VERY expensive rock for a $20 sack of weed….REALLY!? Look, I wouldn’t know a $160K diamond if it bit me in the ass, but once I see that sparkle you can bet your ass I am gonna take it to someone who would know, not some bum off the street. And even then, only $20!? There are so many other things you could’ve done with that diamond: shoes, cars, clothes, pay some bills, make it rain at the strip club…SO MANY THINGS! (via)
