Theft by Swallowing: Woman Steals Gold Bracelets by Putting Them in Her Mouth

SALT LAKE CITY — Police say a woman stole two 14-karat gold bracelets — by swallowing them.

An employee at Hy & Mike's Pawn and Bail Bonds told police he saw the woman put the bracelets in her mouth May 27. Court documents say Salt Lake City investigators confirmed it by watching the surveillance video.

The bracelets, valued around $2,000, have been recovered. Police spokesman Jeff Bedard says he doesn't know just how the jewelry was collected.

Norma Porchas, 41, is charged with retail theft. She has an unlisted phone number and could not be reached for comment Wednesday.

Porchas is scheduled to appear in court June 19.

And the bracelets? They're back on display at the pawn shop.

When I worked loss prevention in the 1990s - we had a big problem with teen males taking earrings off the packaging and putting them in their mouth.

If they walked all thru the store afterwards, between clothing racks, we ended up having to let them go. Because the items were too small, and U couldn't track it after another 20 min in the store. However, when the fools did that and left, I just walked up behind them and waited for them to remove them from their mouth after theu exitted, and then they would start to put them on.

It was about a 70% that any teen male that stood at those earing racks would end up stealing them (or trying to, but getting scared off)
