Three more suspected burglars who police believe stole hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of gold and silver coins from a Coeur d’Alene home earlier this month are in custody.

Coeur d’Alene Police took Patrick A. Hamill, 23, Kaitlyn M. Gray, 19, Trevor D. Robinett, 22, into custody Tuesday at about 5 p.m, according to a news release. The three are suspected of breaking into the home and stealing hundreds of thousands of dollars in valuables on Aug. 4., according to a press release.

The North Idaho Violent Crimes Task Force arrested Derek D. Hague, 24, on Aug. 6 in connection to the burglary. He’s being held at the Kootenai County Jail in lieu of $50,000 bail while awaiting trial on charges of robbery, burglary and malicious injury to property.

The suspects allegedly broke into the home on Aug. 4 before 1 a.m., according to the news release. The victim, a 54-year-old woman, saw the suspects fleeing with two safes containing rare gold and silver coins, as well as prescription medication belonging to her father, who is disabled and was inside during the robbery.

No one was hurt during the robbery.

Police have not located the valuable coins that were stolen.
