Nickel Heist!!!!

Someone stole over 3 million nickels that were being trucked from New Jersey to New Orleans. Police recovered the nickels in the Miami area, buried under ground.

Of course, the biggest mystery of all might be what someone does with that many nickels. "That’s the big question," Orihuela said.

"You bury them in your back yard, I guess."
I guess, but they don't earn any interest that way.
