His name is Walter Earl Morrison. Some people would call him a complete idiot. Back in September 2014, he snagged a $160,000 package at the airport while unloading a UPS cargo plane. Why was it such an expensive package? Because it contained a brilliant diamond.
The 20-year-old Phoenix, Arizona, thief then did something nobody can quite wrap their heads around. He traded the diamond for $20 worth of weed.
Yes, you read that correctly.
According to ABC’s Phoenix affiliate KNXV-TV, Morrison was fired and charged with felony theft for the heist.
The diamond was later recovered and delivered to its rightful owner.
