Ancient artifacts have been stolen from museum in Preston

Antique finds, including 28 silver Roman coins, were stolen from a museum in Preston, England. As it turns out, the people who found the treasure were forced to store the object in the museum.

The finds were to be stored in a locked and secure building before being sent to the British Museum for verification and valuation. The theft was leaked after the British Museum requested the museum in Preston to hand over the find.

A police investigation is currently underway. According to English law, the finders and the owner of the land on which ancient artefacts were found are entitled to financial compensation from museum objects interested in purchasing.
