Thief Caught With Gold and Silver Bars

MARSHALLTOWN, Iowa (AP) -- Marshalltown police have arrested a suspect in the theft of a vintage safe containing a fortune in gold coins and silver bars.

Police on Friday charged 37-year-old Adam Beem, of Marshalltown, and issued warrants for three other suspects.

The arrest and warrants stem from the theft of a safe from a storage unit on July 6.

The antique safe is believed to have been filled with silver bars and gold coins valued at up to $250,000 that the owner had inherited from her father.

Investigators found that some of the silver had been sold to a Des Moines jewelry store. The cut-up remains of the safe were found in a creek bed near Ferguson, south of Marshalltown.

Police recovered many of the gold coins.
