Martinez Thief Puts Rare Coins in His Pants & Leaves


Clein'SWanted: A thief who stuffed some rare coins down his pants at a Martinez store last month and left.

The angry-looking thief waited until an employee of Clein’s Rare Coins was distracted on March 22 and then grabbed a coin collection and placed it in his pants. The coin set was a rare 1994 Veterans Dollards 3-piece coin set. It was valued at $150.

Luckily, a surveillance camera caught one of the clearest images ever of  a local suspect. And he looked right at the camera! See if you recognize him.

If you know him, please call the Columbia County Sheriff’s Office at 706-541-2800.
