A couple have been summonsed to court to answer a charge against the Treasure Act of 1996.
Shane Wood, 62, of West Hanningfield Road, Great Baddow, and 61-year-old Kim Holman, of East Road in Chadwell Heath, will appear at Chelmsford Magistrate’s Court on Friday April 30.
They will both answer a charge of theft and of finding an object believed to be treasure and failing to notify the coroner.
Wood will also answer a charge of going equipped for theft.
It follows the discovery of more than 900 Iron Age Gold Staters in the Chelmsford area in September 2020.
