Gold bar discovery leaves unanswered questions

THE Gold Stealing Detection squad is investigating the discovery of a gold bar found by cleaners in an East Victoria Park property last month.

The apparent unstamped lump of gold-coloured metal was found on March 18 and handed to Cottesloe police five days later.

A police spokeswoman said although the 22cm-long, 5cm-wide bar look similar to melted down gold, it had to be analysed before making any assumption about its composition.

Anyone with information can call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
