Coin Store Burglary Suspects May Be Linked To Other Crimes
AURORA, Colo. (CBS4)– A group of burglary suspects may be linked to yet another burglary, this time out of Colorado Springs.
The suspects were arrested at A World of Coins near Wadsworth and Bowles last month. The other crime happened at All American Coin and Jewelry on South Broadway in Littleton.
Investigators discovered $38,000 in Apple products from burglaries in Colorado Springs, Littleton and Boulder in a storage unit in Aurora. They also found $25,000 in clothing from a Zumiez burglary in Denver, $40,000 in perfume and cologne from burglaries of Ulta Beauty stores in the Denver area and $25,000 in designer sunglasses from a burglary of the Sunglass Hut in Aurora.
They believe the stolen merchandise is linked to the suspects in the coin store burglaries.
In surveillance video from All American Coin and Jewelry, the four thieves can be seen smashing their way through a glass door. In video from a different camera one of the suspects is seen struggling with a bolt cutter trying to break into the store’s safe. He also kicks at it after he is unsuccessful with the cutters.
Two of the suspects tried to hide in the ceiling but got stuck amid the tiles. Both were juveniles. Deputies later found the other two suspects — Quan Nguyen, 20, and Jamy Cham, 18.
Police say they also found an impressive show of coins and items in the car that the thieves were driving, evidence that now connects the two robbery cases.
So far only Cham has been charged in connection with the Colorado Springs Apple store burglary.
