Hundreds of artifacts seized from New Mexico home

Federal authorities seized more than 430 artifacts from a home in New Mexico in what started out as a burglary investigation.

Police found the artifacts while executing a search warrant last month. The recovered items included arrow points, cutting edges and pottery. Some of them may be a thousand years old.

Federal authorities in four states, including New Mexico, have offered amnesty to people with Indian artifacts. So far,about two dozen items have been turned in.

The Four Corner Amnesty Initiative ends this month. More information can be found at
