Is This Diamond Bracelet Yours? Of Course It Is.
Hawkesbury Police’s hunt for the owner of a white gold tennis bracelet containing 40 diamonds has gone far too well.
Having been unable to locate the owner since the bracelet was found in the Sydney area last December, they’ve turned to Facebook to see if anyone will come forward to claim it.
And people have. In droves.
At the time of writing, the post had over 300 comments and 500 shares in a Spartacus-esque frenzy of claims.
But unfortunately none posting “It’s mine” or variations thereof has been able to provide the “satisfactory proof of ownership” which the police are unreasonably demanding.
Of course, following the trollathon, the police may now feel less likely to believe anyone, even if they legitimately are the owner. It’s like the old story of “the mob who cried diamond bracelet”.
Though there were a number of commenters who have suggested it would be unusual for police to try to track down an owner of valuables in such a way… and that maybe they had an ulterior motive.
Let’s just check out that bracelet again from a different angle:
Could it be yours? Perhaps call the police on (02) 4587 4099. Or you could always pop over to the Facebook post and leave a post full of all the deets. There’s lots of people there waiting for some more specific info, which they’ll be happy to pass along to the police.
Just a warning, they may forget to mention your name.
