Palm Beach County, Florida (WPTV). A man turned out to be selling $100,000 stolen comics book and was immediately arrested in Arizona.
Phoenix police said on January 8 that a man from Florida and Royal Palm Beach known as Philip Weisbauer had interviewed a store manager in Phoenix for the sale of four comics. The approximate value of the comics was $ 97,000.
The official said Weisbauer returned to the store two days after leaving it. Weisbauer, who was taken into police surveillance after his visit to the store, was followed until 10 January.
As a result of the police searches, four comics were found among the 446 comics stolen from Raton. The stolen comics were worth over one million dolars.
West Palm Beach Past, Future Comics and Present trades thousands of comics a year. All collectors knew each other, according to Sal Ciano, an employee of West Palm Beach Past, Future Comics and Present. That’s why the store was very careful when the robbery took place.
“Our boss, Mark Gallo, is a good collector. He warned us when he heard the stolen comics. He suggested us, be careful if someone tries to sell the comics here.”
It was not clear whether the stolen items were insured. However, it is highly likely that the comics were uninsured. Because they changed hands constantly, there was no insurance cost.
“The comic book market is not very large,” says Ciano. Comics that are valuable are in the eye. That’s why a few collectors have these comics, and we all know. ” At the same time, comics evaluated have a barcode. Stores check if the comic is stolen before trading.
Four of the stolen comics were found. Nothing is yet known about the other 446 comics.
