Law aids recovery of 900 stolen coins in Vt
SHELDON — A new law in Vermont requiring identification from people selling coins to dealers has helped lead police to arrest a man accused of stealing a collection worth about $4,000.
Police said the coins were taken from a residence in November. Some of them were recovered at a coin dealer.
The law requiring identification from those selling items to coin dealers was enacted in June.
As a result of their investigation, St. Albans troopers executed a search warrant at a residence in Sheldon on Wednesday, where they said they found about 900 coins and identified them as the victim’s property.
Troopers arrested 31-year-old Seth Morgan, of Sheldon. He’s been cited on charges of possession and sale of stolen property.
Morgan is scheduled to appear in court Feb. 18.MORE IN This Just InGov. Peter Shumlin chats with Vermont Press Bureau chief Neal P. Full Story
