Students find bag of treasure while cleaning Lake Merritt

The Oakland, Calif. school has been doing this community service project for years but has never found gold

Doing community service doesn't usually yield more than a sense of pride and a better neighbourhood but that wasn't the case for a group of grade six students in California.

For the past 15 years, a group of students from St. Paul's Elementary school in Oakland have been going to a local lake once a week to help clean up trash.

They usually just find junk, but last week they noticed something that was out of the ordinary.

They found two 7-kilogram canvas sacks full of silver and gold rings, bracelets, watches, candle holders and commemorative coins.

Stolen merchandise

Stolen merchandise no doubt.  Thieves picked the wrong place to stash their loot.
