Fugitive treasure hunter arrested

A treasure hunter on the run for two years is now in handcuffs. Tommy Thompson gained notoriety in 1988, when he found the sunken ship "S S Central America," nicknamed the "ship of gold." The ship went down in 1857, taking with it nearly 500 passengers, and thousands of pounds of gold. We're joined now by "48 hours" Crimesider reporter Michelle Sigona.
