Drug addict steals diamond from his own shop

A jewelry shop employee was detained for alleged stealing a platinum ring from his shop in downtown Jing'an District, police said today.

The ring featuring a 2.01-gram diamond was priced at 301,000 yuan, police said.

The suspect surnamed Chen stole the ring on June 17 from a safe in the shop. He was caught three days later by police who identified him through surveillance video recording.

Chen had pawned the ring for 45,000 yuan and told the police that he needed the money to buy drugs.

Chen has been addicted to drugs since 2008 and his wife divorced him for that reason, police said.
