October 23, 2014 – Once again a US coin dealer has become victim of burglars. On October 12, 2014 the dealer turned back from the MOON Coin Show in Brooklyn Center, MN to his shop. Behind the building in LaCrosse, WI, he parked his car and left. CCTV footage shows how a person approached the car immediately after, smashed a window, and took out a bag. Subsequently, the burglar escaped in a vehicle together with two accomplices. Their getaway car was identified as a Maroon Volvo XC-90, the three men reportedly looked like of Hispanic / Central American descent.
In the stolen bag were no value items. But CCTV footage proved that the car with the burglars had been expecting the dealer for four hours. Apparently they waited for his returning from the coin convention. If you have any relevant information please contact the Numismatic Crime Information Center.
