Nearly $1 million stolen from ANA

Theft of nearly $1 million in coins from the American Numismatic Association Money Museum was just revealed by the American Numismatic Association as Wyatt Yeager entered a guilty plea in federal court in Delaware to one count of felony information that charges him with theft of major artwork in violation of Title 18 of the United States Code Section 668.

According to the information, between January and March 2007 while he was the ANA museum collections manager, Yeager embezzled $492,205 in coins from the museum and he also admitted in his plea agreement to embezzling an additional $492,535 worth of coins from the museum.

The case is being prosecuted by David L. Hall, assistant United States Attorney, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office of the District of Delaware.

I am presently waiting to speak with ANA President Tom Hallenbeck for additional information.
