Coin Show Theft – Traveling Suspects

A theft occurred during the recent coin show held at the Maryland State Fairgrounds in Timonium, Maryland. A male and female, described as being Hispanic, asked to look at several coins at a dealer’s table. The suspects picked out a number of coins to purchase but stated they did not have enough money with them, although they displayed a large amount of $100 bills. The suspects stated they would return in half an hour with the additional money. Upon placing the tray back in the case, the dealer observed that a total of four coins valued at three thousand dollars was missing. The suspects never returned.

The victim advised the female looked like the suspect in a recent theft reported on by NCIC that occurred in Fort Oglethorpe, Georgia.
