Police looking for gold coin owner

gold coin owner

Stolen jewellery and coins which could be worth hundreds of thousands of pounds have been recovered during a police operation in Dumbarton. The haul includes Spanish gold coins, South African Kruggerands and a diamond-encrusted Rolex watch which is thought to be worth a five-figure sum. Police believe the items may come from several different robberies and do not belong to the one person. They have appealed for anyone with information to get in touch.

Det Sgt Martin Penny, of Strathclyde Police, said: "The jewellery is all different so I believe that they do not belong to one person but to many different people. "The items range from antique gold to brightly coloured gold, and include a Rolex watch, a Baume and Mercier watch, gold and diamond rings, earrings, charm bracelets and other gold and diamond bracelets. "Efforts to trace the owners of the items have taken our enquiries to places as far away as Hong Kong". Read More.
