Thief grabs gold worth thousands

August 22, 2011


— The owner of a Wichita store where a thief made off with bag of scrap gold estimates his loss at $20,000.

Police on Monday were still investigating the Saturday afternoon theft at Gold and Diamond Traders.

Authorities say a man came in saying he want to sell a piece of gold. Instead, he grabbed a small sandwich bag full of scrap gold from a counter and ran out the door.

The store’s front door is locked from both sides, and customers have to be buzzed in and out.

Police say the thief had an accomplice who held the door open before both of them fled in a car driven by a third person.
