    My treasure hunting has exceeded the limits of finders keepers (I think) HELP!

    Okay. So so here is the story. Yesterday I went diving and I found a few more items that really are over the top. First, I found an urn. It has human remains in it (I assume they are human). The bottom of the urn has a hole smashed through it. That's about it with that one.

    Next we have a suitcase that I'm pretty sure is for bowling. It had two bowling balls in it and some bowling shoes. No idea why that would be the bottom of the river except for maybe it was stolen and once they knew that they had nothing of value, they just threw it in the river.

    The last find of the day is the big one. It was a car phone bag from the 90's. Remember the one's that looked like a real phone? Well besides the remains of the phone, this bag was packed solid with jewelry. Everything from bracelets to necklaces to old military pins.

    So my question is do I call the police for any of this. I'm thinking so but I'm curious if any of you know laws about finding stuff in the bottom of the river. Is it like metal detecting on the beach. You get to keep what you dig up type thing? Let me know. thanks.

    Can you date anything? Was there a name engraved on the bowling balls or someplace on the URN? Can you read the serial number on the bag phone?

    I'd say a robbery..just a guess.

    Could have been a robbery or a single guys last wishes to have him and his belongings chucked into the river by his bowling buddies. Going to the cops isn't going to accomplish anything. I say nice score!

    So there was a CSA plate in the bag and nothing else of value by the looks of it? That's really weird...good recovery.

    What, exactly, do you expect the police to do?

    It could help solve a cold case. I'd turn it in. Chances are, if it's not part of a crime, nobody is going to claim it anyway, so. you'll end up with it again eventually.
