Oddly Enough News Article | Reuters.com: "BOSTON (Reuters) - In the end, the tale of buried treasure just didn't fit the bills.

Two New England men regaled television audiences this week with their story of finding 1,900 antique U.S. bank notes -- worth at least $50,000 -- in one of their backyards.

But their 'Eureka!' traveled too far, too fast.

Investigators became suspicious over discrepancies in their stories and by Friday police had the men in court, saying the treasure was taken from a construction site where they had worked.

'If they had not gone ... on TV, they could have gone to New York or somewhere and just sold the money and they probably would have gotten away with it,' Methuen, Massachusetts, Police Chief Joseph Solomon told ABC's 'Good Morning America.'

Earlier in the week, the same show had featured the men, Barry Billcliff of Manchester, New Hampshire, and Timothy Crebase of Methuen, who said they unearthed antique currency in Crebase's yard."
