Here’s a really creative way to invest in gold nuggets.  This is a gold investing strategy, you won’t soon forget.

Operators at the Rice Northwest Museum of Rocks & Minerals
became concerned when they discovered a hole in an external wall of the museum’s bathroom. They contacted the police who installed a security device that would alert them if there were any suspicious activity.

A few days later, the security device activated. Police responding searched the surrounding area of the museum where they found a bike and a backpack hidden in the woods.

That’s not all that was hiding in the woods…

A super-sleuthing K-9 began digging around some suspicious smelling ground cover and took a bite out of what appeared to be moss… only it wasn’t moss, it was the “Moss Man!”

The Moss Man is a 36-year old Oregon man who was caught wearing a “Ghillie Suit.” A Ghillie Suit is a head-to-toe camouflage outfit worn by military snipers and hunters so they can blend in with their natural outdoor surroundings.

Police believe that the Moss Man cut a hole in the walls several days earlier with the intention of returning to steal gold nuggets and other valuable rocks and minerals.

The Moss Man denies that he had any intention of stealing gold nuggets or anything else from the museum. He says his kids gave him the Gillie Suit for Halloween and that he was just in the wrong place at the wrong time.
