Omaha comic store robbed at knife point … for ‘Yu-Gi-Oh! cards

by  in Comic News Comment

Dragon’s Lair Comics & Games in Omaha, Nebraska, was robbed at knife point Monday morning by a man wearing a Darth Vader sweatshirt who demanded not cash, not rare comic books but Yu-Gi-Oh! cards. He made off with a box of the cards worth $150, and nothing else.

Owner Bob Gellner told WOWT News that the suspect asked the store clerk to show him specific cards, and then “he drew a knife, took the cards and ran.”

“I’ve had this business here for 35 years and this is the first time we’ve been robbed,” he continued. “We’ve been burglarized. We called the police and they caught them, but this is the first time we’ve been robbed.”

As of Monday night, no suspect had been found. No one was injured in the robbery, but as you can see in the video below, some the shop’s neighbors are plenty annoyed.
