A good friend just showed me this article he saw today. Thought it would be good to share. Just from what was listed in the article, at todays prices, is valued right around 600k from my calculations (including the cash).
I feel terrible for this person and I really hope that the perp is caught. But IMO it's going to hard to trace the bars unless the owner still has the serial numbers and nearly impossible to trace the coins.Burglars take silver, gold coins from Sedona home
SEDONA, Ariz. (AP) - Deputies in Yavapai County says someone broke into a Sedona home and stole thousands of silver coins, bars of silver, gold coins and $80,000 in cash.
A sheriff's statement says the break-in was discovered on Dec. 9 when a woman arrived home and found glass in her back door broken out.
Among the items stolen were 7,000 one-ounce 2011 American Silver Eagles Coins, 15 South African Krugerands, 20 ten-pound bars of silver, 20 five-pound bars of silver, 30 American Gold Eagles with Canadian Maple Leaves and $80,000 cash. The exact value hasn't been determined.
A sheriff's statement says the break-in was not initially made public because detectives were pursuing leads.
Anyone with information is asked to call the sheriff's office.
