Angel on the West Coast claimsto have found it But he has failed to convince his partners Robert Shea Jack Browne and Edward Elmore who made a heavy investment in an expedition to find th6 gold Last month Browne accused Grigsby of being a swindler and of having stolen his light plane The police arrested Grigsby who is also being investigated for suspicion of smuggling gold out of Venezuela Angel found the rich deposit in 1934 when prospector Robert McClintock offered him to fly him from Panama to the Lost World with 400 pounds of equipment and no questions asked They lauded on top of the

finally discovered thc gold By November Grigsby was back in Venezuela with his wife Flora and partners Shea Browne and Elmore On Dec 2 Grigsby took the plane up alone and left owner Browne behind Hc filed a flight plan different from the route he planned to take That was his undoing The Venezuelan gov ernment thinking he was miss ing sent up a search party Browne went to the police claim ing that Grigsby had stolen his aircraft and had swindled him with thc gold story Grigsby was arrested and an undisclosed amount of gold was found in his possession The gov ernment said Grigsby had failed to secure the necessary permits for prospecting and was suspect ed of smuggling a large amount of gold outside the country by way of British Guiana and Trini dad Slica Browne and Elmore were cleared of
