2 suspects are behind bars after police say they stole thousands of dollars worth of antiques and collector coins from a Dothan residence.

32-year-olds Travis Tew and Amy Williams, both of Dothan, were arrested yesterday by the Dothan Police Department.

They are charged with first degree receiving stolen property.

Authorities recovered these stolen items from a storage unit, a motel room, and a vehicle.

Investigators believe the two are responsible for numerous other burglaries in the area.

“There was a house in Dothan that was burglarized and approximately $75,000 worth of property was stolen most of it was old antiques, fine silver, silver dollars things of that nature. In our opinion they are professional burglars so they probably casing the area, casing the neighborhood,” said Sgt. Bubba Ott with the Dothan Police Dept.

One of the silver dollars stolen dates back to 1878.

    This stolen property was from southeast Alabama and possibly northwest Florida. It was most likely owned by elderly antique collectors as well. People that don't even know how to use the internet. It is unlikely any of it would be listed on the previously mentioned website.

    There is an extremely comprehensive stolen property list at http://www.stolen-property.com/ You can report hundreds of items stolen including coins, but it's primarily a stolen property list for stolen property which contains a make, model and serial number such as a stolen car, motorcycle, ipod, laptop, etc.
