Cops: Coins worth $50K stolen from truck in Northeast

Collectible coins worth $50,000 were stolen from a collector’s truck in Northeast Philadelphia’s Castor section Sunday morning, police said.

Police said a 54-year-old man was headed to a coin show in Trevose when he stopped at a Sears Auto Center on Cottman Avenue near Kindred Street just after 9 a.m. to have a flat tire on his GMC truck fixed. When he left the store about 15 minutes later, he found the truck’s front passenger window smashed and a black satchel and green rolling bag containing the coins taken, police said.

Police said no arrests had been made in the theft Sunday night.
