Heck I be happy if I had the strength to dig at all.... that would be my fortune. Gain my life back.
Just saw on Good Morning America those guys were arrested for "stealing" the money! Yep, turns out after they went on all those talk shows even on the late shows last night doing their media blitz about the money, the police got suspicious when they kept telling different stories. Then they got some leads that they had actually found it in the rafters of a house they were renovating. They are roofers by trade. Oh well, if you're gonna be dumb.....

found the link to the story for this morning....

two arrested
