Boyne City Woman Accused of Break-in, Coin Theft

Posted: Updated:

A Boyne City woman has been arrested for stealing $12,000 worth of valuable coins from an Emmet County home.

Police say Wendy McCluskey broke into the home in Little Traverse Township on June 24th.

"Was missing a very valuable coin set which was worth about $12,000, so based on the investigation we figured it was someone that knew him or was an acquaintance of him," said Sheriff Pete Wallin. 

Police say McCluskey also violated her bond by contacting the victim.

The person living in the home was at work during the break-in.

McCluskey was arrested six days later for breaking into the home and stealing the coins.
