Best friends find Blackbeard's treasure near San Joaquin River
FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- The hunt for Blackbeard's treasure in Fresno County is over.
"I was like oh my goodness and so I just kinda like moved the wood a little bit and I could see like the corner of like some plastic and stuff and I was like oh my goodness we found it! Just started screaming," Nicole Entwistle from Fresno said.
Best friends, Nicole Entwisle and Heather Adwards, were hunting for the treasure near the San Joaquin River and the Old Broken Bridge when they found a laminated piece of paper with directions to stop digging.
Once camera crews and Blackbeard's officials made the trip out there they finished digging and found a treasure chest containing $5,000 worth of diamonds and gold.
The best friends plan to split the riches straight down the middle since they found the treasure together
