GOLD and silver coins thought to be worth more than £80,000 have been stolen from a house in Darfield, police say.

Detectives are appealing for the public’s assistance after exhausting all lines of enquiry following the theft from a property on Edderthorpe Lane at some point between Saturday June 22 and Sunday June 30.

The coins are around the same size as a 10p coin, and were stored in plastic tubes.

Detective Shaun Peel said: “We have conducted an extensive search of the property for fingerprints and evidence but believe our communities may have information that we need.

“We are keen to speak to anyone who has any information that can help them us with our enquiries, and from anyone who has been offered to buy gold or silver coins.

“If you have any information please call 101 quoting incident number 649 of June 30, 2019.”
