At a news conference Wednesday, the FBI could not say if Donald Miller would face charges for his collection in Waldron. Dozens of agents were at Miller's farm to collect and process the artifacts.
The FBI has around 100 agents at the farm and they say it could take them up to a week to figure out what all the artifacts are. They've brought in a team of outside experts of archeologists and anthropologists to help.
That includes archeologist Dr. Larry Zimmerman from IUPUI.
"I'm frankly overwhelmed I've never seen a collection like this in my entire life," he said.
"Over the last several months a FBI investigation has determined Mr. Miller may have knowingly or unknowingly collected artifacts relics and objects which may have been a violation of several treaties, federal, and state statues," said FBI Special Agent in Charge Robert Jones.
Now, this is added to one of the articles as an afterthought...

This is quite interesting. I guess some law somewhere allows the FBI to seize private property at their discretion?
I'd like to see that law.
This whole thing reeks, one hundred FBI agents and tents? This is the kind of security afforded to UFO crash sites.
This makes me question exactly what Mr. Miller had in his possession. The establishment likes to cover up OOPA (Out of Place Artifacts) as apparently, there is a paradigm they are willing to maintain at all costs.
