Author Forrest Fenn put out a poem with clues to a treasure of gold coins that he hid somewhere in the Rocky Mountains.

Begin it where warm waters halt

And take it in the canyon down,

Not far, but too far to walk.

Put in below the home of Brown.

and the poem goes on to give other clues that people are following to find the treasure. But people are putting themselves in danger and the Police Chief wants to put an end to the treasure mystery.
