Doctors in Bangkok, Thailand, discovered during a colonoscopy that a Chinese tourist had a stolen diamond worth $277,515 hidden inside of her.

According to Police Colonel Mana Tienmaungpak, doctors removed the six-carat diamond from a woman’s large intestine after noticing a foreign object inside her upon police investigation.

The woman was given medical attention after natural methods and laxatives failed to get the diamond out.

Both the woman and a Chinese man were arrested on Thursday at Bangkok’s Suvarnabhumi Airport, after surveillance video showed the duo switching the real diamond for a fake one at a fair outside of the city.
