A pair of Pennsylvania treasure hunters and their lawyer are accusing the FBI of playing games and acting suspiciously about a dig at a rural site believed to contain a massive stash of Civil War-era gold — which may be worth up to $250 million.

The accusations from Dennis and Kem Parada, and their attorney, Bill Cluck, came months after the bureau said it dug a hole in Dents Run and found nothing. The father-and-son duo felt convinced that area of state-owned wilderness northeast of Pittsburgh holds a hidden stash of gold and the pair claim the FBI went back on their word to let them watch the excavation. And legal efforts to shed more light on the dig have so far been unsuccessful.

The article goes on to state the following:

“I don’t understand the FBI’s behavior. Why would search warrants be sealed at this point in time? The project is over,” Cluck told Fox News on Tuesday.

“I have no idea what motivation the FBI would have for hiding gold if in fact it was there,” he added. “There is no logical explanation except their behavior is suspicious.”
