    Fenn graveyard looter gets prison sentence

    The guy who looted the military cemetary in Yellowstone National Park while looking for the Forrest Fenn treasure was sentenced to six months in prison, six months of home detention, two years probations and a fine of $31,566. Got off easy if you ask me. He dug 17 holes and other damage.

    I'll leave it to you to figure out where the opposite goes.

    If your heart is in it you will find a thousand ways to achieve your goal.
    If your heart is not in it you will find a thousand excuses.

    Ouija Board and map dowsing , one and the same. Just tape a map onto the Ouija Board and you have map dowsing.
    Works great if you like wild goose chases and snipe hunts!

    L-rods are obsolete.

    May you never take one single breath for granted.

    I don't buy that he was after the Fenn Treasure, i think it was just the excuse he gave the court. Being he dug 17 holes in that grave yard where US soldiers were buried, i personally think he was attempting grave robbery. Likely looking for military swords, guns, insignia, gold rings etc that were buried with the soldiers. I could well be wrong, but I don't personally buy his Fenn cover story.

    Just as i thought, look at how deep these holes are and right on the grave sites themselves. He also would have known digging that deep and under roots that he was into soil that hadn't been disturbed in a 100+ years, not the loose recently disturbed soil of a chest just buried a few years earlier. Plus, he had to have known Fenn likely wouldn't have broken federal law just to bury a treasure right on top of a US soldiers body. Also, had Fenn buried it in a Grave yard, once it was dug up, the digger may have been caught red-handed thereby implicating Fenn of a crime too.

    No sir, the Fenn excuse was just his cover story, he was there grave robbing, no doubt about it in my opinion.

    Fenn didn't say he 'buried' his treasure anyway.

    Just like Texas in 1880.
