Only problem was, they couldn't get the story straight, so the police started looking into it.
Here is a quote from the police chief:
"Had they kept quiet ... they probably could have sold the money and no one would have ever known," Police Chief Joseph E. Solomon said. "It just got away from them. Sort of like the snowball rolls down the hill and it keeps going and crushes you."The homeowner didn't know the money was in the barn.
