"The mint confirmed Thursday that an employee has been fired and the RCMP called after the discovery of the missing gold, two one-kilogram blanks, together worth about $110,000.

"Last month, as a result of robust internal inventory processes, employees of the Royal Canadian Mint reported a small amount of gold missing from the premises," Alison Crawford, the senior manager of public affairs, wrote in an email Thursday........"

Does Canada even have jails? If they caught the crooks, what would they do with them?



Sounds like one mint employee won't be drawing his retirement, oh yea, he just did!

At least they seem to take security a little more seriously.

Interesting the 2 kg of gold is a "small" amount. I think the value of the article is too high as well. The only way to kilograms would be around $110,000 would be if gold was valued around $1700 an ounce. Of course I haven't checked into it but if you figure in exchange rate value between Canadian and U. S. that might be possible.

Someone was fired, but it isn't clear that they actually caught the person who did it yet.
