Thief returns $1400 in comics to store after surveillance video airs on local news

A thief walked out of JC’s Comics ‘N’ More in Toledo, Ohio, with $1,400 worth of comics concealed in his pants, but he seems to had a change of heart– after video of the act was shared on a local newscast, the comics were mysteriously returned

Store owner James Collins said the seven missing comics were Marvel’s Civil War comics with variant covers, valued at between $70 an $250 apiece. Collins first noticed the missing comics last Wednesday, and when he viewed the security camera footage, he saw a man, accompanied by a woman, enter the store, stuff the comics into his pants, and walk out without paying. Collins was tending to other business at the time and didn’t see them enter or leave the store.

Collins shared the video of the theft with the local news, and that’s when things got interesting. One of the comments on the linked website actually offered the thief’s nickname, and apparently he was feeling some heat. Although the stolen comics were initially offered for sale on Craigslist, they were ultimately returned to the store, left in a bag at the front door.

Nonetheless, Collins says he will still press charges; the police say they know who the thief is, and are looking for him.
