Police Release Surveillance Video of Coin Store Burglary
Break-in happened Aug. 30 in Silver Spring
Montgomery County police released surveillance video Tuesday of a man stealing what they estimate to be $6,500 in property from a downtown Silver Spring rare-coin store on Aug. 30.
According to police, the man broke into Bonanza Coins at 940 Wayne Ave at around 3:34 a.m. The glass on the front door was smashed. Someone broke a display case, taking $6,500 worth of coins.
The three-minute video shows a man wearing dark clothes kicking open what appears to be a screen on the bottom part of the door and climbing into the store with a bag. Multiple cameras angles show him breaking a display case, removing items and running out the broken door with the property.
A witness saw the man leave the scene in an “older model sedan,” according to a press release.
Anyone with information is asked to call the 3rd District Investigative Section at 240-773-6870 or Crime Solvers at 1-866-411-TIPS. Crime Solvers will pay a cash reward of up to $10,000 if it leads to an arrest.
