On Christmas day, Dan Johnson Jr. and two friends allegedly broke into a shed on his father’s property, where the coin collection was stowed. The burglars also reportedly stole tools and two safes, which had approximately 50 to 60 pounds of silver and jewelry inside.
The thieves took the coin collection, worth several thousand dollars, and dropped it into a Coinstar machine, where they received $450. They were unsuccessful in their attempts to put the silver coins into the machine and eventually took those to a local bank. “It was an inheritance, which made it even worse because I lost an inheritance that was meant to go forward for my children and grandchildren,” Johnson said of the collection that his son had purloined.
