CORINTH – Corinth police need help in locating two men who mad

CORINTH – Corinth police need help in locating two men who made off Saturday with a safe filled with guns and rare coins.

“It was a pretty good-sized safe,” Corinth Police Investigator Ralph Dance said. “Apparently this thing was so heavy that they had to drag it out.”

The theft occurred about 9 a.m. Saturday at a home on West Fifth Street. The safe’s owner, Stan Hughes, was at work at the time of the incident.

The 4-foot-tall contained about $10,000 worth of World War II and European coins, a bagful of silver dollar collector’s coins and a variety of 11 shotguns and rifles.

The culprits entered the home through a rear door and left in a tan pickup with the safe, according to a neighbor, who spotted the two men leaving the home.

A sketchy description of the two suspects indicates only that they are two white males between the ages of 20 and 30.

Police are asking anyone with any information on the theft to call the Corinth Police Department at 286-3377.
