Manchester Man Faces Additional Charges In Jewelry Theft Case

FREEHOLD, NJ — A Manchester Township man who owns a Rumson jewelry store is facing additional charges after 11 more people contacted authorities to say he had not returned jewelry left on consignment, or for repair or redesign, the Monmouth County Prosecutor’s Office said Thursday.

Anthony Goltsch, 40, who owns the Golden Goose on West River Road in Rumson, initially was charged with theft in September after three customers contacted authorities to say he had not returned jewelry that was worth a combined $260,000, Prosecutor Christopher Gramiccioni said.

Gramiccioni said the additional reports bring the total amount of jewelry involved to more than $560,000, and 14 victims. Goltsch has been charged with an additional count of second-degree theft by failure to make required disposition of property received, he said.

Goltsch was appointed in late July to fill the vacancy on the Manchester Township Board of Education created when Christopher Nolan resigned. He also is seeking election to the board for a full term.

The following were the additional victims. Gramiccioni said:

  • Victim 1 consigned a ring with an appraised value of $45,000 to Goltsch in April 2019. The victim has not received any payment for the ring and has attempted to get the ring back on numerous occasions, but Goltsch has not returned or paid the victim for the ring.
  • Victim 2 gave Goltsch a large quantity of sterling silver jewelry to melt in November 2015. The jewelry has an estimated value between $5,000 and $10,000, but the victim has to-date not received payment from Goltsch.
  • Victim 3 consigned a watch with an estimated value of $1,800 in July 2019. Victim has not received any payment for the watch and has attempted to get the watch back on numerous occasions, but Goltsch has not returned or paid for the watch.
  • Victim 4 paid Goltsch a deposit of $6,900 for a ring in June 2020. Goltsch did not deliver the ring but the victim was able to reverse the charge on his credit card.
  • Victim 5 paid Goltsch $34,500 for a watch between March and June 2018. The watch was never delivered by Goltsch, and he has refused to refund the money.
  • Victim 6 paid Goltsch a total of $98,704 between November 2019 and February 2020 for both gold and silver coins. The victim has not received the coins despite numerous follow-ups with Goltsch.
  • Victim 7, who is a jewelry dealer, provided diamonds on at least eight occasions to Goltsch to sell between April 2018 and June 2019. Despite numerous requests for payment or a return of the diamonds, Goltsch failed to pay or make a return. The total amount of the theft for this victim is $98,500.
  • Victim 8 in March 2019, victim handed over earrings to Goltsch for repairs. Despite multiple requests made to Goltsch, he has refused to return the items valued between $700 and $1,000.
  • Victim 9 turned over to Goltsch in June 2019, assorted gold jewelry for melting. To-date, the victim has not received payment for
