Coin Show Thief CAUGHT at F.U.N. Show in Orlando! Now RELEASED!​

Jan 12, 2024

The Kingston Military Police are investigating the theft of silver and gold coins from a Canada Post office on a Canadian Forces base.

The police say five packages containing $50,000 worth of gold and silver coins were dropped off at the CFB Kingston post office around 9:45 a.m. on Thursday, Jan. 18.

The suspect in the case, a French-speaking young man, entered the location about 15 minutes later, identified himself as the owner of the packages and provided a fake Ontario driver’s licence bearing the true owner’s name.

Police say the real owner of the packages came to the post office the next day, only to be told that the coins were already collected.


Thieves Steal Italian Sculptor's Gold Jewellery Exhibit​

Thieves have stolen almost 50 pieces of gold jewellery by the Italian sculptor Umberto Mastroianni worth 1.2 million euros in a targeted hit on an exhibition in northern Italy, curators said Saturday.

A "highly specialised gang" made off Wednesday night with almost the entire collection of rings, bracelets, pendants and sculptures by Mastroianni, considered one of Italy's greatest contemporary sculptors, on display at the Vittoriale degli Italiani estate on Lake Garda.

Only one of the 49 items in the collection, worth a total of 1,207,400 euros (around $1.3 million), was recovered elsewhere on the estate, the Vittoriale said in a statement after holding a press conference on the theft.


I'm guessing the art will be melted down since it seems to be well known and therefore likely difficult to sell. I wonder what the bullion value of the heist was.
