SPRINGFIELD, IL – Treasure Hunters Road Show has filed for bankruptcy. The debt is estimated to be anywhere from one hundred million to five hundred million.
Last month THR was forced to close down in Springfield after Sangamon County Sheriff's posted an eviction notice. Earlier this year thousands of people filed claims of bounced checks. The checks were written by THR to buy metal, antiques, and collectibles around the county.
A group of former THR employees filed suit in federal court claiming the company violated federal wage and labor laws.
