Military Police seek information into theft of $50K worth of coins from CFB Kingston post office

The Kingston Military Police are investigating the theft of silver and gold coins from a Canada Post office on a Canadian Forces base.

The police say five packages containing $50,000 worth of gold and silver coins were dropped off at the CFB Kingston post office around 9:45 a.m. on Thursday, Jan. 18.

The suspect in the case, a French-speaking young man, entered the location about 15 minutes later, identified himself as the owner of the packages and provided a fake Ontario driver’s licence bearing the true owner’s name.

Police say the real owner of the packages came to the post office the next day, only to be told that the coins were already collected.

The suspect is described as:

  • White
  • Approximately 5’8″-5’9″ tall

He was wearing sweatpants and a hoodie, as well as a blue medical mask.

The suspect arrived with a blue and black foldable cart, seemingly knowing that the packages were heavy in weight.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Kingston Military Police at or at 613-541-5010 ext. 5676.
