Judge warns Tommy Thompson to reveal location of gold coins

A U.S. federal judge is warning an ex-treasure hunter that he could face another contempt-of-court charge if he doesn’t reveal the location of 500 missing gold coins. Ohio Judge Algenon Marbley ordered Tommy Thompson to co-operate by granting power of attorney to allow the government to figure out if a trust in Belize knows the coins’ whereabouts. The order came 493 days after Thompson first refused to reveal the location of the coins.

Marbley has held Thompson in contempt of court since December 2015 for violating terms of a plea deal by refusing to respond to questions about the coins’ location.
SS Central America, known as the Ship of Gold, was a 280-foot (85 m) sidewheel steamer that operated between Central America and the eastern coast of the United States during the 1850s. The ship sank in a hurricane in September 1857, along with more than 420 passengers and crew and 30,000 pounds (14,000 kg) of gold.

The ship was located in 1988 by a group headed by Thompson, who promptly 'mysteriously' disappeared.
