Foreign Currency Taken By Thief

By The Spokesman-Review

A Valley woman lost $1,500 in foreign currency and her passport when her home was burglarized last week.

The thief apparently used an old key to gain entry into the home on South Farr Road, sheriff’s deputies said. The door was locked with a deadbolt and no windows were opened or broken, said the occupant of the home, who was away when the burglary occurred Wednesday morning.

The burglar took 80,000 Italian lira, 500 French francs, 400 Swiss francs, 200 German marks and 200 British pounds. The pounds were in traveler’s checks. The burglar also took $60 in European phone cards, about 100 personal checks and the owner’s passport, deputies said.

No arrests have been made.
