Astonished council gardeners who found a package of 10 solid gold ingots apparently abandoned behind a bush in Switzerland have been told they can keep the loot if it isn't claimed.
The gold - thought be worth more than 80,000 GBP - looked as if it had been deliberately hidden in the undergrowth where the men stumbled across it as they were cutting grass verges.
"I saw a package wrapped in white tissue paper, with lots of adhesive tape around it. It looked like a packet of drugs," said one of the finders, Jean-Marc Wenger, of Klingnau.
The town is near the country's border with Germany and police believe it may have been some kind of criminal pay-off that went wrong.
"It's gold all right, the ingots have been tested. I've never known anything like it," said police spokesman Bernhard Graser.
Under Swiss law if the gold remains unclaimed for five years then the finders can claim ownership.
