Robber poses as delivery man, robs Hammond store of coins, jewelry /By Tom Negovan / May 21, 2013

Six figures worth of collectible coins and jewelry was stolen at gun point from a northwest Indiana shop Monday morning.

The suspect showed up to J & J Coins in Hammond just after 8 a.m. disguised as a UPS delivery driver.  An employee buzzed him in, even helps the guy with his boxes, until he reaches into one and pulls out a shotgun.

The robber then bound the man with zip-ties on his hand and feet.  He then took his time in the store, picking and choosing from an array of coins and jewelry for over an hour.

The suspect is described as an African American male in his 40s. about 5’8 and 200 lbs.  It’s believed he fled in a 4-door green Ford Taurus.  There’s a $5,000 reward for information that leads to an arrest.
