Teens cast line, catch cash

Two teenagers caught more than they expected during a fishing trip at Blythe Ferry at the Rhea/Meigs County line, ABC Radio News reports.

The radio report said Mark Spicer and Dylan Crumbley reeled in two large bags filled with more than $10,000.

"I thought I had a turtle at first, started reeling it in and it turned out to be bag," Spicer said. Then they reeled in a second bag.

The boys called the Rhea County Sheriff's Office to report their findings, ABC Radio reported.

Officials said the money was dyed red and they believe it is linked to a December bank robbery.
