    The homeowner stashed most of his money in Folgers coffee bins.

    State police say someone got away with a lot of change when they burglarized a rural western Pennsylvania home.

    About $10,000 worth.

    Troopers from the Punxsutawney barracks say the North Mahoning Township homeowner discovered the money missing in late September, but says it could have been taken at any time since February.

    The man had the money stored in six or seven red plastic Folgers coffee containers and a 5-gallon glass jug. About $5,000 was in the coffee containers and the same amount in the jug, police said.

    The township is about 55 miles northeast of Pittsburgh.
