Police recover 'swallowed' ring

Police in New Hampshire say they have recovered a £2,100 engagement ring a man is said to have swallowed during an attempted jewelleryy shop raid.

Authorities charged 52-year-old Ronald Perley with theft and falsifying physical evidence after they say X-rays showed the 14-carat white gold ring with princess-cut diamonds inside him.

WMUR-TV said policehad recovered the ring as of yesterday.

Perley allegedly went into a shop in Manchester on Thursday asking about engagement rings. Workers said he grabbed a ring, then swallowed it after being confronted.

Police say surveillance footage shows Perley taking the ring and putting his hand to his mouth.

He was being held on £32,600 bail.
