Men accused of illegal metal detecting at historical site
Two men were caught illegally metal detecting at a historical site in Peterborough, England. They were caught metal detecting in a former Roman town which is a protected site.
They were found guilty at Peterborough Court for these criminal actions: attempted stealing, being equipped to steal and using a detector on a protected area without permission.They both recieved 12 month community service, 200 hours free work, and a fine of £300. Do you think they deserved it?
The detectorists were spotted by a farm worker who took pictures of them detecting and reported it.
Personally i feel that this kind of people are giving the rest of us detectorists a bad reputation. What do you think about this?
