      A homeless Austin area man...who found 40 gold coins and 70 $100 bills...while washing his feet in a river in January...will get to keep the treasure...as soon as he gets out of jail.
     Timothy Yost, 46...has been locked up for public intoxication in the Bastrop county jail...while the city decided if he could receive the money.
