SANTA FE — Police said two people posing as workers hired to remove tree limbs from power lines, instead stole a 77-year-old widow’s $30,000 collection of gold coins.

The homeowner told police that she was talking with a woman claiming to be on site to cut the tree limbs when an unknown accomplice went into the house and took a large box and safe. The box and safe held a 25-year collection of gold and silver coins that belonged to the woman’s late husband.
