Boy, 5, finds stash of stolen treasure in pond

Boy Finds Treasure In Pond

There might actually be something to all of those bedtime stories about hidden treasure you heard when you were younger.

At least that's the case for a 5-year-old boy in Nuremberg who found a stash of jewelry hidden in a pond in a village in Bavaria.

The Local reports "the boy was poking around with a stick in the water and cried out to his parents when he saw something glittering. The family started taking necklace after necklace out of the water before finding a bag full of jewelery."

At first, police estimated it to be worth just under $14,000. Friday, a spokesperson said the find was worth MANY times that. But it wasn't a case of "finders keepers" unfortunately. Turns out the jewelry was stolen and authorities returned it to the owner.

unfortnately,observation is a lost gift, or not a taught art in any of todays society.you dont have to look very closely to see that many of the (treasures) in the bag still have price tags on them.i guess most of you folks could not get past the greed and glitter,to observe that.stolen goods for sure.quite a cache of someones stolen stash.try to be more observing of lifes treasures and you may find you allready have ones which money cant buy.

Seems fishy to me. Price tags and returned to whom? One owner??? I sure hope that child was rewarded and not robbed of his good fortune. A pawn shop would have to report that amount with tags to the police in USA. Hmmm

It seems that everything in Germany has been stolen by the Nazis at one time or another.

If it was stolen by the na zis, it would have been stolen between 1938 and 1944.

The tags from the store are still on the jewelry. I would have to say they are stolen. Hopefully the store will give the little boy something for being honest.

Attention everyone, ATTENTION ATTENTION. . . Did anyone here lose a roll of $100 dollar bills with a rubber band around it?

Its better to be honest than not. Life can be short and Karma is real so always do the right thing!!! it takes guts and common courtesy to do the right thing. not too many people seem to have those characteristics! congratulations young man on being honest! :D

Being honest gets you nothing but stepped on. You think all those wealthy people in the world got their money by being honest? Nope, they cheated and stole from every person they came across and never give anything back.
