Police seek owner of vintage coins

Redwood City police are asking for help in finding the owner of rare vintage Chinese and Japanese coins found with a suspect arrested for a theft from a vehicle last year.

The suspect was arrested on Nov. 20 and a search of his car turned up the rare coins, police said. Investigators suspect they were stolen but don’t know from where or when. The suspect has ties to San Francisco, police said.

To find the source of the coins, police posted a photo of them on Pinterest and are asking anyone who recognizes them to contact the Police Department at (650) 780-7100.
