A Lafayette man faces felony charges after allegedly stealing five gold coins from a house in Sullivan.

The Madison County Sheriff's Office says Stefan Kuczynski, 25, broke into a home in the Town of Sullivan and stole five coins valued at $5,000.

He then sold the coins to a shop in Syracuse, but not before giving the shop owner his driver's license and other information.

Kuczynski was charged with felony counts of Burglary and Grand Larceny and was sent to the Madison County Jail in lieu of bail.

He could face up to 15 years in prison for the burglary and seven years for grand larceny.
