Alleged coin bandits have been tearing up the Valley, breaking into businesses left and right, stealing all the loose change they have.

“Almost about $3,000,” said Karolis Bkheit, whose business was hit.

Recently, they messed with the wrong city. Chief Daniel Hahn and his Roseville officers say have made it their mission to find this band of four thieves.

“We believe they hit at least 18 places, the four in Roseville and 14 other ones from Yuba in the North, down to Ripon in the south,” said Dee Dee Gunther with Roseville Police.

Two people have been arrested for these break-ins, 49-year-old Cynthia Patrias and Robert Miller of Turlock, and two other people have been identified as being involved, but they are not in custody yet.

The 18 businesses who were victimized banded together traded surveillance video and security tips to help each other out. Bkheit says its the only up side to this crime.
