PHOENIX — A Phoenix home invasion suspect is caught after stealing a $170,000-coin collection.

Phoenix police report that on January 6 several suspects committed a home invasion near 7th Street and Greenway Road.

They allegedly forced the homeowner to open a safe and give them his coin collection worth about $170,000.
The victim recognized one suspect, 27-year-old Rolland Jeremy Davis, as being a friend of his son.

Police located Davis ten days later and arrested him outside a coin shop near 44th Street and Dunlap Avenue.

The store owner recognized Davis as someone who sold him $67,000 worth of coins the week before.
The coins were later verified as the coins taken in the home invasion.

Police say inside Davis' vehicle they found 44 more coins.

Upon his arrest Davis allegedly told police that he used a fake gun in the robbery and split the coins with the two other suspects.

Davis is being held on a $100,000 bond for armed robbery and trafficking in stolen property.

Police continue to search for more stolen coins.
