Police probe after valuable antique coins stolen

Police are investigating the theft of a collection of valuable antique coins from a home.

Burglars made off with a haul including century-old coins after ransacking a property in the Co Armagh town of Lurgan, Northern Ireland, in the early hours of Saturday.

Police said they received a report of a burglary just after midnight at the Albert Street property.

Thieves made off with a range of items, including a large quantity of 1915 Austrian Corona 24-carat gold coins and a number of Romanian silver lei coins, PSNI Chief Inspector Jon Burrows said.

Mr Burrows appealed for anyone with information to contact police on the non-emergency number 101, quoting reference number 01 of 2/9/17.
