Coins worth £80,000 stolen in Darfield burglary

GOLD and silver coins worth more than £80,000 have been stolen in a raid — and detectives believe the answers behind the burglary lie within the community. 

Burglars broke into a property in Edderthorpe Lane, Darfield, between Saturday, June 22, and Sunday, June 30.

The stolen gold and silver coins are around the size of a 10p piece and were stored in small plastic tubes.

Detectives said they had pursued all lines of enquiry and were now asking for the public’s help.

Det Con Shaun Peel said: “We have conducted an extensive search of the property for fingerprints and evidence but believe our communities may have information that we need.

“We are keen to speak to anyone who has any information that can help them us with our enquiries, and from anyone who has been offered to buy gold or silver coins.”
