BUSTED AT PARSIPPANY COIN SHOW! THIEF CAUGHT RED Handed 
September 2, 2018 6:12PM in U.S. Coin Forum
This morning the Parsippany coin show attendees were treated to a special treat when a public attendee- thought to have been the thief in the previous 2 months of stolen coins (including https://tapinto.net/…/rare-silver-dollar-stolen-from-parsip… was caught red handed slipping coins under the table.

Dealer Vinny Blum who was one of the victims last month coordinated the sting operation with the local show security. As the perp sat down to view coins at Vinny's table, his body motions were being monitored on both sides by security. While attempting to ask prices on certain coins, he slid others under the table.

His actions were spotted and he was approached and kept in place while he was searched. Mr. BLums as well as another dealers coins were found on his persons and he was arrested and taken away by police.

More information with a name and picture hopefully when it gets put online

kudos to the show operators and security involved in catching this thief.
