Investigators believe Cendejas stole gold and platinum coins from an elderly female valued between $100,000 and $200,000.
Cendejas, owner of Golden Triangle Associates in Nederland, Texas was contacted by the victim who wanted to sell her collection which consisted of 160 gold and 50 platinum coins. The victim shipped the coins and once received by Cendejas he advised her she had a one million dollar collection.
In the months following she received only $16,000 for the sale of 18 coins. The victim demanded the return of her coins but none were shipped and Cendejas quit all communications.
The suspect lived in Groves, Texas and may have relatives or ties in Oregon.
