PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- Surveillance footage revealed an image of a possible suspect and vehicle believed to be involved in a bizarre dime heist.
Officers say a group of suspects broke into a tractor-trailer and stole $200,000 worth of dimes in Northeast Philadelphia on Thursday morning.
Roughly two million dimes were taken during the incident.
The suspect's image was recovered from a video taken on the 4900 block of Wellington Street just before 6 a.m. the day of the theft, police said.
The suspect stole a trash can from that location and used it to transport coins away from the tractor-trailer.
His vehicle had a license plate cover, and officials believe a 2022 or newer four-door Toyota Tundra may also be involved.
Officials say the Tundra is a dark color, possibly dark green, with a paper tag over the license and tinted windows.
Investigators told Action News they are looking for as many as six suspects in this theft.
The tractor-trailer, which was parked in a Walmart parking lot on the 4300 block of Byberry Road, contained about $750,000 worth of dimes.
When officers first arrived at the scene, dimes were found scattered from the Walmart parking lot to Woodhaven Road.
The truck driver picked up the dimes from the Philadelphia Mint on Wednesday but went home to get some sleep before making a long drive to Florida.
Police said he parked the big rig in the Walmart parking lot overnight. When he came back Thursday morning, he found the trailer door was open.
This investigation is ongoing. Anyone with information about the theft is asked to call the police.
