The couple dug up my backyard box with jewels
But they didn’t.
An unexpected discovery was made by Matthew and Maria Emanuel of new York, when he tried to plant a tree on your front of the house. Digging earth under the plant, they came upon an iron box, appeared as nothing less than a safe.

The couple bought the house about four years ago and did not even suspect that next to him is buried a treasure.
When they opened the safe, found inside the money, diamonds, gold and expensive jewelry (including engagement ring), worth about 52 thousand dollars.

In addition, inside the metal box was a note with the address of their neighbors. As it turned out, unknown persons robbed their house back in 2011. Then the criminals took away including a safe with jewelry. How the stolen items were buried in the garden of their neighbors — is unclear.
Found treasures Matthew and Mary have given to their rightful owners, refusing remuneration.
