Posted on 04/15/2012 8:59:41 PM PDT by nickcarraway
Milton is a small New Hampshire town that knows how to safeguard its secrets -- namely by losing the combination to one very large safe.
No one's quite sure when the safe was last opened, but the town's administrator and selectmen were determined to end the mystery of its contents.
So they hired a safecracker, Seacoast Lock and Safe owner Paul Letourneau. Letourneau says it took him three hours Thursday to drill through and reset the combination of the safe.
"On a scale of 1-10, it was probably a seven," Letourneau said.
The safe was immediately closed and relocked so its contents could be unveiled and inventoried publicly Saturday morning.

Is jerry rivers going to do the honors?
you mean geraldo?
No, but Al Capone and Elvis were there.
When about a dozen local officials and residents gathered Saturday and the safe was finally opened, there was no Boston Post Cane, but a host of historical records were found: mortgage records dating back to 1858, when some properties sold for less than $100; old town meeting minutes; records of local soldiers sent to fight in World War I; papers in which “intentions of marriage” were recorded.
LOL! But where’s the Sam Adams?
Is that his stage name?
Goodness! You’re right!...this cache couldn’t be from Milton NH!
Maybe they’ll find Jimmy Hoffa in there or possibly a 50 year old Twinkie still ready to eat!
I love the part about the safes being too big to fit through any doors or windows in the place. Nobody knows how they got in there.
And the engineers of the pyramids have their mysteries, too. :-)
Couldn’t have been that they were placed in the building during contruction so they couldn’t be removed. No. Must have been aliens who put them there.
