North Strabane Township police said three rings -- two ingested -- were recovered from Robert Spriggs, 53, after he allegedly stole them Saturday from his 81-year-old mother and he is now being observed at Washington County Jail to see if he swallowed any other jewelry, the Washington (Pa.) Observer-Reporter reported Wednesday.
"It is possible he may have ingested more than what we know," township police Lt. Dan Levi said. "Two tennis bracelets are also missing. We are in a holding pattern."
Police said Spriggs' cell at the jail does not have a flushable toilet.
