In an attempt to escape Thailand undetected, a Chinese woman swallowed a stolen diamond amounting to 10 million baht ($278,000).
The 39-year-old woman named Jiang Xulian admitted to stealing the gemstone after it was spotted lodged in her gut on an X-ray scan at the Suvarnabhumi airport. Jiang and her 33-year-old male companion were arrested while trying to flee Thailand.

Jiang and her companion are being detained on theft and could face a three year prison sentence and a fine.
In the past, several diamond thieves have resorted to swallowing precious stones to evade arrest.
In fact, a man who swallowed 220 polished diamond was captured in South Africa in 2012 after the diamonds worth an estimated $2.3 million were detected by an airport security body scanner.
