Police in Manchester, N.H., say they have recovered an engagement ring a man allegedly swallowed during an attempted theft at a jewelry store.
Employees at the store called police Thursday to report they witnessed Perley attempt to steal the ring.
The employees told police Perley entered the store and asked to see several engagement rings. While looking at a ring, Perley allegedly made a run for the door, police said.
Perley was unable to exit the store because, as a precaution, the store's door is kept locked from the inside. When confronted by employees at the store, Perley allegedly swallowed the ring.
He was then taken to a hospital, where an X-ray showed a ring was inside his body, police said.
Surveillance video from the store allegedly showed Perley attempting to steal, then swallowing the ring.
WMUR-TV reported Saturday police have recovered the ring.
