Buried loot under the freeway

It looks like a treasure map and there's buried loot.

But there aren't any pirates involved.

Instead of Captain Jack, investigators say a convicted burglar buried a stash of jewelry under a freeway overpass.

Detectives say the treasure map, with an "X" marking the spot, was provided by an attorney for Roberto Caveda.

Los Angeles Detective Bill Schultz says the stash of Rolex watches, diamond rings and other loot could be worth hundreds of thousands of dollars.

Caveda is due to be sentenced today, and could get up to 10 years in prison.
