Man Found With 44 Diamonds Up His Backside, Cops Say

Man Found With 44 Diamonds Up His Backside, Cops Say

A man was found with dozens of diamonds hidden up his bum, cops have said, which sounds not only impractical but also painful.

Twenty-three-year-old Eusebio Padilla, from New Mexico, was pulled over by police while out on his motorbike in Albuquerque last Sunday.

However, eagle-eyed cops then saw him removing a small baggy from his backside, the Albuquerque Journal reports.

And it was here that officer Daniel DeGaff, from Bernalillo County Sheriff's Office, opened the bag to find 44 small diamonds - and here's me thinking diamonds were a girls' best friend and not a fella's intimate partner.


Padilla was initially pulled over for driving without a licence plate, but then the bizarre events unfolded.

The report read: "Based on the uncommon behaviour of concealing diamonds in packaging commonly used to store narcotics, and concealing it in his butt cavity, and the attempt to get rid of the item, it was apparent to me that Padilla must have known the baggy of diamonds was stolen."

The complaint goes on to say that when asked, Padilla admitted to the cop that the stones were most likely stolen.

DeGaff wrote that Padilla told him he has got the precious stones from his uncle and was hoping to trade them for drugs.

Padilla now faces charges for handling stolen property and tampering with evidence.

Bizarrely, this isn't the first time someone has attempted to smuggled diamonds with their arse.

Back in 2015, cops in Thailand were investigating the case of a missing diamond, which had been stolen from a jewellery fair after thieves switched it with a fake.


Fortunately for the police, the fair managed to capture the incident on CCTV and days later a man and woman were later arrested at Bangkok's Suvarnabhumi Airport - but where was the diamond?

Well, medics eventually managed to pull the 6-carat gemstone - which was worth 10 million baht ($392,000) - from the woman's butt. The woman later confessed, I suppose she didn't have much choice really.

The diamond's owner was then given the fun task of identifying it once it had been removed - and presumably wiped it down at the very least.
