A dealer traveling home after the recent Walnut Creek, CA coin show was the
victim of a vehicle burglary. The dealer stopped at a hotel and placed his coins
inside his room but left several large totes in the car. The dealer drove to a nearby
Denny’s for dinner and was inside for approximately 30min. When the dealer
returned to his vehicle the rear drivers side door was broken out and totes were
removed. The totes contained mineral specimens, jewelry, and coin supplies
valued at $15-20,000. No suspect information is available at this time.
The Fresno County Sheriff’s office advised the victim that an organized group of
car burglars were operating between San Jose, CA and Las Vegas, NV.
