AKRON, Ohio - Buried treasure has new meaning for the Akron area Red Cross.
More than $10,000 in cash found last year while a crew excavated old basement foundations was turned over the Barberton Red Cross on Monday.
The owner was never identified. It might have been buried a half-century ago.
Three property owners and the company that hired the excavator were competing in court for the cash, but the Red Cross was offered as a compromise.
The Red Cross will put the money toward summer camp expenses.
