Following up on yesterday’s [Napoleon] Lucky! [/Napoleon] comes [Napoleon] Idiot! [/Napoleon], as the two guys who found buried treasure in their backyard are arrested for theft.

Crebase told investigators the men found the money in the gutter of a barn they were hired to repair, police said.

“We got an anonymous tip two days ago,” Capt. Kris McCarthy told the Eagle-Tribune newspaper of Lawrence. “These guys are roofers. They found the money on the job site. They story after that was all made up.”

(Credit Shemko for the win. He not only scoped the article but came up with the outstanding [Napoleon] Idiot! [/Napoleon] callback. That cat’s all right.)
