VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WTKR) – Thieves steal more than $1,000 in change from a Virginia Beach couple’s home.

A roll of Michigan quarters is all that’s left of a collection Lori Skytta had been collecting for nearly a decade.

Skytta says she made a project of collecting rolled state quarters- the rest of the change was in a five gallon water jug. But that was all taken on Valentine’s Day.

Lori says her husband came home and realized thieves had broken in and ransacked their bedroom. She says she was planning to pass on the collection to her newborn grandson.

“I thought this is something I could pass on to him, maybe put into a college fund for him or do something that would benefit him in the long run and you know, now it’s gone,” said Skytta.

The Skyttas believe there were at least two thieves, because the change was so heavy. Police are checking with area businesses to see if anyone has cashed in large amounts of coins.
