Deb Thompson went to a Minnesota Goodwill looking for a deal and some bling. She got both: a pair of gem-studded pants for $3.99. And in one of the pockets, a diamond ring worth at least $5,000. Thompson is trying to locate the owner.

RENEE MONTAGNE, HOST:

And Deb Thompson got both: a pair of gem-studded pants for $3.99, and in one of the pockets, a diamond ring worth at least $5,000. Thompson showed her own goodwill. She asked the charity to help find the rightful owner. And there have been dozens of claims, but for the moment, it's finders, keepers. It's MORNING EDITION.
