      Stolen gold, or money, remains stolen, else you’d have thieves robbing banks then claiming to have ‘found’ the money. But the idea they initially thought there were guns hidden inside the fuel tank deserves a level of incredulity, why would anybody hide a machine gun in a war, they are ‘two a penny’? And I think for even well spoken people there would have been some expletives of surprise at finding bars of gold, when it all appears matter of fact, and they very quickly decide they have found all of the bars when tanks have many other hiding places. Just saying.

      1. It stands to reason that, if you’ve stored a fuckload of ammo in a tank, you’d hide the guns where you could easily retrieve them and nobody would think to look. At least that’s my opinion.

    Objects found belongs to the original owner if and only if that owner express interest to get its property back. In Canada, it’s usually a year after the discovery. Hence why the authorities gave them a notice acknowledging the fact they found it (to be able to give it back to them if the real owner does not show up in time)
