Thieves steal $175,000 from rare-coin shop in Benbrook

BENBROOK -- Thieves stole about $175,000 in jewelry and old coins from a Benbrook business, police said.

The owner of Ron Swiney Rare Coin Shop, 8111 Camp Bowie West, arrived at the store Monday morning to find that someone had broken in and cut into his vault, said Lt. Mike Ford, a spokesman for the Benbrook Police Department.

The burglars apparently cut through the roof sometime Sunday or early Monday to get into the business, he said. It was unknown what kind of cutting tool was used.

Investigators are still looking into whether any surveillance video was available, he said.
