[00:08.73]Did the detectives save the diamonds?
[00:13.54]The plane was late and detectives were waiting at the airport all morning.
[00:19.88]They were expecting a valuable parcel of diamonds from South Africa.
[00:25.56]A few hours earlier,
[00:27.79]someone had told the police that
[00:30.09]thieves would try to steal the diamonds.
[00:33.82]When the plane arrived,
[00:36.07]some of the detectives were waiting
[00:38.20]inside the main building
[00:40.30]while others were waiting on the airfield.
[00:44.39]Two men took the parcel off the plane
[00:47.63]and carried it into the Customs House.
[00:51.30]While two detectives were keeping guard at the door,
[00:55.43]two others opened the parcel.
[00:58.43]To their surprise,
[01:00.48]the precious parcel was full of stones and sand!
