There’s Gold In That Thar Water!

Today’s prompt was to find the third article down and include the headline in my post. Here goes…


Fugitive US treasure hunter Thompson pleads guilty


Considering everything that has come to light today and I’m meant to write about this. Oh well.


Apparently, this guy was wanted for evading a civil case against him brought on by his creditors. He and his accomplice had been hiding out in Boca Raton, Florida for two years under assumed names while doing everything possible to evade the authorities. To pay for stuff in cash, they had to have a lot of money. Man, I barely have bus fare. Disappointed smile


A plea bargain has been made and this guy will spend no more than two years in jail for skipping out with the creditor’s money. He’s also got to turn over the  $425,380 (£286,000) that was initially seized from his bank account. Considering he’s potentially sitting on top of all that largess, wow.


He’s going to be sitting pretty a few years from now.


The End. Rolling on the floor laughingRed heartRainbow
