When he threw the items away, did he intend to recover them at some future time?

Did he discard the items so they would not be detected on his person?

Is he trying to hide the items from a metal detector? At the airport?

Did the items change in any way during the puzzle?

Did the items perform any function for him?

He a human? adult?

Did he make some use of them? such as shorting out an alarm system?
Is it relevant that he threw away exactly these three items? could he have thrown away three other items instead? or more? less? would they have to be from the loot?

Was the jeweller pursuing him?
Was he trying to slow the jeweller down by tricking him into stopping to pick up the discarded jewels, giving him more time to escape with the rest of the loot?
