Some of you may have heard of the theft of some very spectacular gold specimens from a small museum in Mariposa County, Calif. last September. Some of the thieves have been arrested. Apparently the thieves did not melt down the gold immediately and some of the specimens have been recovered. A friend who was a police chief once told me that they would never catch as many criminals as they did if such a large percentage of crooks were not so stupid.

I lived up in Yosemite for a couple of years and traveled thru Mariposa quite often. Sad thing is I didn't do any prospecting in the area when I lived there
