|Mug Shot of Diamond Thief|
It does happen. The latest incident occurred in an Albany, Georgia store as reported in a local tv station's video . Honey Bun doesn't really guard the John Ross Jewelry store. The new pup is more like a greeter and shop mascot for owners, Chuck and Ann Roberts.
Chuck was working on some cut diamonds and earring backs when he had to wait on a customer. Distracted, he failed to move the chair away from his shop work table. So when he later discovered 2 diamonds and an earring back missing, Honey Bun was chief suspect.
A trip to the vet's for an x-ray confirmed the pup's guilt. Diamonds are radiolucent which means they are "transparent" and do not show up on x-rays. X-rays pass right through them unlike glass, crystals and cubic zirconium which are slightly radiopaque. But the two blank spots in Honey Bun's x-ray was enough evidence.
The diamonds and earring back passed right through Honey Bun's alimentary canal and were recovered a day later with no harm done. He wasn't reprimanded either as Chuck pointed out, "I haven't scolded him to this day and I won't. Why not? It's my fault for leaving the chair there, that's why."
