Youngsters sell family mementos to buy mobile phones


(ANSA) - Arezzo, August 27 - Five youngsters in the Tuscan
city of Arezzo are accused of swapping a family's memories for
new mobile phones.
Police allege the five, including three minors and two
young adults, stole a family's gold memorabilia and sold them
for cash to buy new mobiles.
And it's a growing phenomenon, say police, driven by the
very high price for gold.
In this incident, a family had called in the police after
discovering several items stolen.
According to police, a minor child in the home, with the
help of some friends, sold the items at a Compro Oro jewelry
store - one of many that have sprung up, offering to buy gold.
The youngsters face charges of aggravated theft and one
faces a count of receiving stolen goods.
Police say the boy's older accomplices have experience in
selling jewelry taken from friends' homes, adding that this type
of crime has become widespread among youngsters in the
prosperous city of Arezzo.
