Gang Activity and Numismatic Crime
The Numismatic Crime subjects pictured below entered a Cincinnati, Ohio coin shop displaying a large amount of cash and wanted to buy gold coins. The M.O. is similar to previous offenses that occurred across the country in the latter part of 2019.
Working with our European law enforcement partners we have identified the two subjects.
NCIC has been advised by Jhon E. Cash Rare Currency of Highland Village, Texas, that both $5,000 notes have been found. No further details can be released at this time.
