The comics are thought to cost approximately $97,000.The officer stated that Weisbauer abandoned the shop but returned two weeks later to deal with the shop owner.
After he left the shop after his next trip, the authorities followed him into the home where he had been detained on January 10. The stolen comics have been valued at more than $ 1 million.
West Palm Beach Past, Current, Future Comics purchases, trades and sells tens of thousands of comics per year. “All collectors understand each other,” explained Past, Current, Future Comics worker Sal Ciano. When the comic book prosecution happened in Boca Raton, the shop was on high alert.”Our owner, Mark Gallo, is among these collectors so that he sort of understands.
He learned about those publications when they went missing, so if a person tried to market them, it would increase the flags, Ciano explained.
It isn’t known if some of the stolen property was guaranteed. But because they always change hands, more frequently than not, people don’t invest money on their insurance.”When you’ve got novels of the high price, of the type and so on, they get visible books.
Just a few collectors have them in any particular time, in order to sort of know that they are, it is not such a huge circle,” Ciano explained. But, each comic book is barcoded, which shops typically check to find out whether it’s stolen or enrolled in before purchasing or trading.
It’s not known if some of those 446 stolen books were discovered besides four located in Arizona.
