Since this thread *has* been resurrected, I guess I need to look further into it as to why this was a crime or what else he was wanted for. Did Mr. Thompson steal from a sovereign nation by plundering treasure?
No, he ran off with much of the treasure and never settled with the backers/investors that had sunk money into the search.
He is still sitting in jail because he refuses to reveal where the treasure is stashed.
