Law helps with recovery 900 stolen coins in Vt.The Associated Press | January 24,2014SHELDON - 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 last June.
As a result of their investigation, St. Albans troopers executed a search warrant at a residence in Sheldon on Wednesday, where 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 charged with possession and sale of stolen property.
Morgan is scheduled to appear in court on Feb. 18.MORE IN This Just InBy George V. Nostrand Full Story
