An armed robber forced his way in to the home of a man in Essex early on Wednesday and stole a collection of 170 Roman coins.

The attack happened in Blenheim Close, Braintree, just after 04:05 BST and it left the victim, aged in his 60s, with cuts, police said.

The coins were kept in plastic wallets inside an A4 binder.

"This was a frightening incident and I need to find the person responsible," Detective Constable Red Leeson said.

"Some of the coins taken are rare and quite distinctive and I need to speak to anyone who thinks they have been offered them for sale."

He appealed for anyone with information to come forward.

There comes a time in every rightly constructed boys life when he has a raging urge to go somewhere and dig for hidden treasure.

That’s a first !  We hear about gold coins being stolen but Roman ?  Wonder what ‘rare’ coins he had.

Scum again. S’pose he’d heard the word rare and thought they would be valuable.

Its a sad fact that you have to be so careful about where you live and when you go on holiday etc. never let people know on forum or on line.
Plus if people hear about decent finds because of age they will assume its worth money and you might get a nocturnal visitor of the human
magpie variety......This is why anything i have of value is kept in my local bank vaults.....Paul.
