    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.
