A pair of break-and-enter thieves stole dozens of bullion coins and bars worth $41,000 from a home in Niagara Falls, Ont., in late November.
Two months later, the Niagara Regional Police Service (NRPS) publicly reported the theft asking for public assistance.
After smashing a glass door, the suspects entered the home in the Mountain Road and January Drive area at 5:35 p.m. on Nov. 27. The thieves then found a safe and forced it open before stealing the gold, silver and platinum coins and bars. The stolen items include eight one-ounce gold bars plus five 10-ounce silver bars issued by the Royal Canadian Mint; 10 one-ounce and two 10-ounce “Buffalo” silver bars issued by SilverTowne, an Indiana-based dealer; and two one-ounce “Buffalo” gold coins plus five one-ounce “American Eagle” platinum coins, all issued by the U.S. Mint.
The ongoing investigation has been assigned to detectives with the NRPS 2 District Street Crime Unit. Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact detectives at 1-905-688-4111 (ext. 1008454).
