Subject: Bigelow is a Thief

It may interest you to know that one of the key issues in Bigelow's purchase
of the Utah ranch near Roosevelt last fall was that there were alleged alien
artifacts found on the property, before Bigelow signed the paperwork. Bigelow
made some rather wild statements, according to three witnesses, involving the
five jet-black metal rods that Bigelow requested to take for testing and
would not return.

Bigelow himself said they had unusual physical and electrical characteristics
in addition to being extremely hard, then changed his story. He told the
former ranch owner they were just carbon rods from old batteries and
suggested the rancher spread this story around to the other people in town
the rancher had shown them to.

Bigelow would not return the rods, which he never purchased outright and had
no ownership rights to, expecting his concocted explaination to settle the
matter. There is no recourse for other reputable researchers to take but to
say Robert T. Bigelow, whatever else he is, is indeed a thief and all
research done by his organization and with his finacial backing is inexorably
tainted.

just spoke to Gary about this.  The story is supposedly 100% true.  The rods could not be burned or chipped by tools, and outputting energy.  They were black and 6 inches in length.

Junior Hicks also apparently handled the "rods", and confirmed to me personally the authenticity of that story.  

I'm being told by others that the story is B.S. but I have heard from Terry Sherman, Ryan Layton, Gary Hart, and JR. Hicks all confirming it actually happened.  Whether the rods themselves are alien tech, or simple mistaken farm parts is currently unknown.

I have a feeling the rods were large army issue florescent light sticks.

described as all black, 6 inches in length, and could not be burned or damaged by a chisel.

I wasn't there nor have I ever seen there.  Jr hinted that he has photos of them.

Did anyone ever happen to indicate what kind of energy these rods were emitting?

very very doubtful, Jr is very media shy.  I think he actually gets upset when asked to do official interviews.  Its a shame as he really is a gatekeeper of local ufo reports before Bigelow/NIDS got into the picture.
