CASPER, Wyo. (AP) — A Utah man faces felony charges resulting from alleged attempts to locate a famed treasure on the grounds of a cemetery in Yellowstone National Park.

Rodrick Dow Craythorn was accused of digging in Fort Yellowstone Army Cemetery in northeast Wyoming while searching for the Forrest Fenn treasure.

Craythorn pleaded not guilty to charges of excavating or trafficking in archaeological resources and injury to U.S. property.

Fenn sparked a treasure hunt through several states after the New Mexico art dealer offered clues to a treasure he had hidden.

Authorities say the treasure was located in Wyoming in June.
