AIKEN, SC (WIS) - A $3,500 reward is being offered for the return of a coin collection that was stolen during a home break-in.

Aiken Department of Public Safety and Crimestoppers are offering up to $1,000 for information and the return of the highly collectable coin collection. The victim offered an additional $2,500.00 cash.

Investigators say the coins were stolen during a string of break-ins that occurred at four Aiken homes on January 8. Between 3:15 and 4:30 a.m., four homes were burglarized and several vehicles were broken into within a half-mile of each other.

The gold and silver coins are valued in the tens of thousands of dollars. Some of the silver coins have been recovered but none of the gold coins have been found.  The list included Tenth Eagle Coins, Gold AM Buffalo Coins, MS 63 St. Gaudens Coins and Morgan Silver Dollars.

If you know anything that can help investigators find the stolen coin collection or the person responsible for the break-ins, call Crimestoppers at 1-888-CRIME-SC.
