This attempt at a switcheroo didn’t fool the police.

Police told Fox 5 NY that Izaebela Kolano walked into a Costco in Clifton on Sunday and asked to view the expensive jewelry. She then handed back what the employee believed was the ring she was allowed to look at and left the store, they added.
Store managers then determined that the ring Kolano gave back was a $2,000 one swiped from a Costco in Wayne earlier in the day, Fox 5 NY reported.
Clifton police tracked Kolano down at her home in Nutley and found the $28,000 ring buried under a dirt fence along the Passaic River.
