LANCASTER – The Lancaster Station’s Robbery Suppression Team is seeking the public’s help in recovering several collectable silver mint coins stolen during an early morning home invasion robbery in July.
“We’re asking if anybody sees somebody selling silver coins, or if they’ve recently purchased some silver coins not knowing that they were stolen, to give us a call,” said Lancaster Community Relations Deputy Michael Rust. “We’re just asking people to be aware that there are some stolen silver coins out there.”
The coins were stolen during a home invasion robbery, which occurred at about 2 a.m. on Sunday, July 22 in the 44400 Block of 15TH Street East in Lancaster, Rust said.
A woman was alone and sleeping in her home when she was awoken at gunpoint by several male intruders, according to Robbery Suppression Team Sergeant Roelofson.
The intruders restrained the woman’s mouth, arms and legs with tape, while pointing a gun at her. They stole several items from the woman’s home and then fled the location, according to Roelofson.
Physical evidence initially led detectives to one male juvenile. Two search warrants were served for locations and evidence, and several serialized items belonging to the victim were recovered.
Daveion Overman, 20, and Ronyen Carter,19, were arrested and charged in connection with the home invasion robbery. Two juveniles were also arrested, but their names have not been released.
Detectives are asking for the public’s help in recovering the outstanding stolen property, namely the victim’s collectable silver mint coins.
Anyone with information on this incident is asked to contact Lancaster Station’s Robbery Suppression Team at 661-948-8466.
