Santa Clarita Valley sheriff’s deputies are looking for someone who’s missing some rare coins.

The silver coins, some dating to the 1700s, were believed stolen in the burglary of a vehicle or residence. They may be valued at as much as $50,000.

Investigators found the coins in the possession of a Canyon Country man who was arrested Thursday on suspicion of burglarizing a vehicle, according to a Sheriff’s Department report.

Investigators want to find the person they belong to.

Anyone with information about a recent theft of such coins, who can positively identify them and provide supporting documentation, can contact Detective Mike Marino of the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station’s Burglary and Fraud team at (661) 799-5137.

The suspect, a 22-year-old man, was being held without bail on suspicion of burglary, vandalism, receiving stolen property and possession of burglary tools.
