Man coughs up stolen ring

A Missouri woman whose ring was stolen got it back when the suspect coughed it up in front of her, according to a report:

Officers searched the suspect and could not find the ring. But the man began to cough uncontrollably, Newton said.
“And they kept questioning him, and he kept coughing,” he said. “Finally, he coughed it up.”
It was off to jail next for Cleon L. Harris, 23, and Breanna M. Johnston, 19, both of Joplin. They were charged with receiving stolen property.
