Gee Honey, Look What I Found in the Back Yard


Oh sure, I could be so lucky. All I ever seem to find other than more work to do in my back yard is more rocks. Not the same can be said for Tim Crebase of Methuen, MA who found a stash of cash buried in his yard.

Crebase said two men with him when he uncovered the box, as well as the owner of the Methuen house where he lives, agree the treasure, estimated to be worth as much as $75,000, is his.

“I’m the one who found it,” he said.

Crebase said he’ll make sure his new wealth doesn’t cause new rifts.

“I’d rather burn the money than cause problems between me and my friends,” said Crebase, who was in New York on Wednesday for cable and network TV interviews.

Yeah that’s it, I’m burning the money boys. I’m going down to the bank no the dump to burn the money, yeah. In all seriousness, if he burned the money he may in fact create issues with his buddies. Split it up and off to the North End you go.

The total stash was about 1,800 bills dating between 1899 and 1929 and piles of gold and silver certificates.

“I thought I was in a dream looking at this stuff,” said Mangano, who estimated the value of the find at between $50,000 to $75,000.

A pretty good days work in the back yard. There is no truth to the rumor that Red will be digging up every inch of his back yard this weekend.

Update: The buried treasure is worth more than $100,000, according to a coin shop owner.
