(KMOV.com) -- A quarter of a million dollars in gold coins is missing from a safe deposit box, according to a lawsuit in St Louis County.
The suit, filed by a man who now lives in Nevada, accuses the Safe Deposit Company on South Lindbergh Blvd. of negligence and breach of contract.
Barry Thalden claims he paid for the box since 1992 and placed in it 119 Krugerrands, 19 ten dollar gold coins and 14 twenty dollar gold coins.
Court documents state when Thalden opened the box a few months ago, his coins were gone and someone else's items were inside.
The Safe Deposit Company did return a request for a comment.
