(Meredith) -- It's not something you see every day, but residents in New York's Barre Community are trying to figure out how and why a mysterious safe appeared in a farmer's field.
The safe appeared in Kirk Mathes's field with a note that says whomever can open the safe can keep whatever is inside.
Local residents and authorities tried to crack the safe open, but no luck so far. But Mathes has another plan.
He wants to hide it, saying that it's more fun to leave it locked.
"My personal feeling is leave it as a mystery," he told CNN. "If you open it, the show is over."
