Seaside burglary victim stays strong after home break-in

SEASIDE, Calif. (KION-TV): A residential burglary occurred on June 15th on Peninsula Point Drive in Seaside. Now, Seaside police need the help of the public in identifying two suspects who they believe to have stolen over $200,000 worth of collected coins.

Seaside police said it happened in broad daylight. Fenton Ward, the owner of the house who was burglarized, said he has lived in his home on Peninsula Point Drive for six years.

"When I saw what was taken; It was just a sadness over the loss," said Ward.

Ward said that when he returned home from an appointment with his wife, he saw two doors of a drawer open in his garage. In addition to this, a window was completely broken and Ward believes the suspects gained entryway through that window.

Ward said the safe where the collected coins and jewelry were, was so heavy that it required the strength of at least two people to carry it. Seaside police said there may be a third suspect.

"The Jeep Grand Cherokee [was the] same vehicle seen circling the house that was broken into," said Commander Doza of the Seaside Police Deparment. "So, we believe that those are both connected, we want to talk to those two individuals to see if they are in fact connected with the burglary."

Seaside police said they're working to get the license plates of the Jeep Grand Cherokee. The two alleged thieves are described as white or Hispanic males in their 20s or 30s.
