It wasn't a buried treasure, but rather a buried TV that an Upper Arlington woman said her children recently dug up.

A woman in the 1900 block of Elmwood Avenue told Upper Arlington police her children were digging in a flower bed in front of her house between 11:50 a.m. and 12:06 p.m. May 4 when they found a TV.

The report didn't state the type of TV, or how long it might have been there, but it was found under mulch.
