Walter Earl Morrison is cooling his heals inside a Phoenix, Arizona jail after being busted for theft at his job as a UPS worker.
The 20-year old was unloading cargo from a plane last week at Sky Harbor Airport when he spotted a package he thought contained cash. He stuffed the package inside his shirt. When he got home he discovered what he had stolen was actually a diamond.
According to WPTV, Morrison had no idea the stone was worth $160,000. He wound up trading it for a $20 bag of weed.
It didn't take long before he was caught. Morrison was fired by UPS and arrested. He's been charged with felony theft. His next court appearance is scheduled for Tuesday, September 30, in the Maricopa County Superior Court.
