A young treasure hunter in Britain found something unusual and valuable when trying his metal detector for the first time last year. Three-year-old James Hyatt was using it when, as he put it, “It went beep beep beep.”

Hyatt and his father started digging and Thursday they went public with their find, a 500-year-old gold pendant. Experts say it’s worth about $4 million dollars.

Crime tip: Don’t tell a clerk you will be back later to rob the store

A man was arrested after attempting to rob a convenience store in eastern Kalamazoo County twice early Sunday.

Early Sunday morning the Kalamazoo County Sheriff’s Office responded to a report of an attempted armed robbery at the Shell Mart at Miller Drive and 35th Street in Charleston Township. The clerk told deputies that a male subject had entered the store earlier and told her that he was going to rob it. The clerk said she told the subject that he was not going to rob the store and so he left. The clerk said that a short time later the male subject returned and told her that he had a weapon in his pocket but became scared when the clerk said she had called police and fled the store.
