(Scroll down for video) A man was fired from his job at UPS, after he stole an expensive package, which contained a diamond.

20-year-old Walter Earl Morrison of Phoenix, Arizona, worked for UPS at the Sky Harbour Airport.

While unloading a plane of merchandise intended to be delivered by UPS, he stole a package.

Morrison allegedly believed that the secured package contained cash, so he stuffed it under his shirt and left work.

However, rather than cash, the package contained a diamond worth $160,000. Morrison exchange the diamond for weed.

According to court documents, when Morrison found that the package was not full of cash, he quickly negotiated the valuable stone for a $20 bag of weed.

Morrison was arrested shortly thereafter. A spokesperson for UPS said that he was fired, and the diamond was recovered and returned to its rightful owner.
