Detective finds coins taken in burglary

Thu., Dec. 16, 2010

The case of the missing gold coins has become one of recovered treasure – at least partly.

Spokane County sheriff’s Detective Richard Gere has located some and has information that may lead to the recovery of more of the gold and silver coins boosted during an August burglary from Spokane coin collector Dennis Miller.

Charged in the theft is Gary D. McCabe, 45, who was recently sentenced to seven years in prison for a 2009 burglary.

McCabe is facing the same time in prison at a Jan. 10 trial for the Miller burglary.

“Information gathered by the detectives so far indicates that others were involved and there is an ongoing investigation,” said Deputy Prosecutor Bob Sargent.
