HUGOTON, Kan. (AP) — A recently dug up underground tunnel in southwest Kansas was likely used by 20th century outlaws Bonnie and Clyde, according to town leaders.

Hugoton officials last month discovered a partially collapsed tunnel under a building the couple frequented. The tunnel didn’t contain any direct artifacts from the criminal pair, but town leaders plan to continue digging, the Wichita Eagle reported .

“I always wondered why nobody pushed this,” said Jan Leonard, executive director of Stevens County Economic Development. “I’ve been wanting to bring this out for 20 years, but it never has happened. We opened up the tunnel and it has helped.”
