An employee of All Valley Coin and Jewelry in Temecula, Calif., helped police arrest two young men who allegedly stole jewelry from a local home.
Last Sunday, a California home was robbed of jewelry, coins, and collectible items. The victim’s daughter notified jewelry stores and pawn shops in the area, including All Valley Coin and Jewelry.
The next day three young men entered the store and allegedly attempted to sell the stolen coins. A store employee immediately became suspicious and contacted police.
William Esancy II, 19, of Encinitas, Calif., has been charged with alleged possession of stolen property and conspiracy, according to a police department press release. A second juvenile was arrested for a no bail warrant for possession of stolen property.
“Within our eight years of operation we’ve received hundreds of lists of stolen merchandise,” Morris Minsberg, owner of All Valley Coin and Jewelry, says. “Luckily this time we were able to retrieve the items.”
