In 1933 John Dillinger robbed the Unity Trust & Savings Bank of Chicago and made of with about $76,000 in cash as well as $175,000 in negotiable bonds, and at least $300,000 in jewelry, all stripped from safety deposit boxes. It is said that the loot was buried in a field on his father's small 10-acre produce farm just outside Mooresville, Indiana.
The Oak Tree Treasure
Legends claim that a band of Gulf Coast pirates, traveling north along the White River in the 1820s, buried a cache of gold coins on a bluff east of Freedom. They marked the spot by driving a sword into an oak tree. They never returned for the treasure.
