Suspect Selling Counterfeit Coins and Bullion
Friday, February 7, 2014
Section: Anti-Counterfeiting

Dealers in Illinois, Missouri, Oklahoma and Kansas should be on the look out for a suspect selling counterfeit coins and bullion within the last ten days. The suspect has been identified as Gabe Owen and sometimes uses the alias Garet or Gabriel Owen. Owen is a white male and uses a Kansas driver's license or a passport as identification. The vehicle driven by Owen is a white Yukon or Tahoe.

Owen is attempting to sell gold bars, one ounce gold eagles, a 1795 PCGS VF dollar and silver eagles. The same suspect was identified in similar incidents and reported by NCIC approximately one year ago.

The Numismatic Crime Information Center is working with authorities to get a current photo. At the present time there is no outstanding warrant for this subject.
