Dog devours $10,000 worth of diamonds at Ga. store

ALBANY, Ga. (AP) - When $10,000 worth of diamonds went missing from a Georgia jewelry store, employees say they suspected the heist was an inside job.

So they took X-rays of Honey Bun, a beloved dog who greets customers at the store, and determined that the pooch ate the diamonds.

WALB-TV reports that workers at John Ross Jewelers in Albany were able to retrieve the diamonds the next day.

Co-owner Chuck Roberts said he had left his chair near his desk while he went to help a customer earlier this month. When he returned, an empty jewelry pouch was lying on the floor.

Roberts said an X-ray showed two suspicious looking spots inside Honey Bun. The next day, they recovered the missing earring back and two diamonds.
