Friend of suspect in Italy who returned to scene of robbery told guard he was looking for a ‘finger with a ring on it’. The finger, or specifically two phalanges of a right ring finger, were found poking out of rubbish close to the fence of the recycling plant a little later, but without the ring.

The injured man sent a friend back to the area, a recycling plant in Milan, to search for his body part and the ring, but the friend was spotted by a security guard rummaging through leaves, local media reported.

When the guard at the plant asked him what he was doing, he reportedly responded calmly: “I’m here for a friend, I’m looking for his finger with a ring on it.”

Before police could arrive, the man escaped with an accomplice who had been waiting in a nearby parked car.
