WINDSOR, Ont. — Police in Windsor, Ont., say a man who is alleged to have swallowed a $20,000 diamond will have an ultrasound to try and locate the stone.
Sgt. Brett Corey says the procedure will be performed sometime today.
It's alleged that Richard Mackenzie Matthews, 52, switched a diamond at Precision Jewellers and swallowed the real one.
He has been held at police headquarters but has yet to pass the 1.7-carat stone. Corey says Matthews is co-operating but it has been a tough week for him.
Police have been receiving calls about the case from as far away as England.
Matthews is charged with theft and breach of court conditions, and is also wanted on warrants in Toronto.
