Keeping your jewelry safe is one thing. Stashing it in an empty soup can though isn’t necessarily the best place to hide your treasures as one women recently discovered.
She thought she was doing a good deed and as they say, no good deed goes unpunished. Theresa Hekel recently filled a large bag full of cans of food to donate to the Postal Service’s canned food drive. While she was busy raiding her pantry, she forgot that that one of the soup cans was actually full of her jewelry. She thought it was a safe place to keep her gems, including her wedding ring.
Once she realized that she’d donated more than just tomato soup, she hurried on down to the warehouse where the food was being sorted and distributed. After hours and hours of searching though, the fake soup can still eluded the good deeder and volunteers who were helping look.
Today, a plea went out to anyone who may discover more than crushed tomatoes when they open their can of soup…… and yes, the soup will be replaced along with a reward for the return of the jewelry.
