Coin dealer Robert Beels of Pocono Coin, East Stroudsburg, Pa., was robbed after leaving a coin show in Parsippany, N.J., June 6, according to the Parsippany Troy Hills Police Department.
“I’m afraid they wiped me out completely, including my inventory, cash, checkbook, personal information, etc.,” Beels reported.
“I had stopped at Chili’s resturant on Route 46 ... to have something to eat,” Beels reported. “I parked my car in front of the resturant, in front of a window. I sat down at the table on the other side of the window in view of my car. We ordered something, I looked over at the car and saw my trunk wide open and my box of lamps on the ground. I jumped up and ran outside, only to find my window had been smashed and my inventory in the trunk was gone along with my briefcase. I saw nothing.”
Anyone with information is asked to contact Detective Edward D. Conklin at 973-263-4341 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Doug Davis of the Numismatic Crime Information Center at www.numismaticcrimes.org is also assisting.
