Man pleads guilty in Pa. antique coin theft

ALLENTOWN, Pa. (AP) - October 28, 2009

Twenty-seven-year-old Troy Anderson is scheduled to be sentenced Dec. 18. He was also charged with leaving four young children unattended at home while committing the crime, but those counts were dropped as part of Tuesday's plea.

Police allege that 27-year-old Shawn Robinson stole a display case from Hottel's Coins at the Merchant Square Mall on Nov. 16 and hopped into a waiting car driven by Anderson. Authorities say they have recovered all of the coins, which included some half-cents and some silver dollars.

Spokeswoman Debbie Garlicki of the district attorney's office says Robinson is serving time in New Jersey on another case and will then be extradited to Pennsylvania.
