$ 25k reward posted for stolen Gold

A $25,000 reward is being offered for information leading to the capture of thieves who smashed a display case in a New Jersey museum and swiped more than $750,000 in gold. The brazen July 2011 heist happened at the Sterling Hill Mining Museum.

Robert Hauck, a member of the museum’s board of trustees, said the thieves used a 4-foot-long ax to break through a half-inch of ballistic plastic where the 15 pieces of gold – from places including Australia and Brazil -- were being held. "They were in and out in two or three minutes. It was a smash-and-grab job,”
