Man arrested, accused of attempting to sell stolen rare coin

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - A man was arrested Friday for trying to sell a rare stolen coin five years after it disappeared.

Investigators say Edgard Padilla-Maldonado tried to sell a rare coin, worth more than $120,000, that was stolen back in 2014. However, the store owner actually knew the original owner and called the police.

Padilla-Maldonado is charged with theft of property worth $60,000 to $250,000.
