Vancouver, BC: Most of the stolen comics taken during a break-and-enter to an East Vancouver home on October 17th, have now been recovered.
Shortly after the theft, police put out a public appeal Investigators visited every store involved in the sale and purchase of collectables in an attempt to locate the stolen comics and possibly identify a suspect.
Earlier this week, a man walked into a Vancouver business looking to sell a number of comics. The owner of the shop quickly recognized them as the comics officers had been looking for. He held onto the items for police and the suspect fled the shop.
There are a few comics still outstanding, but the Fantastic Four: Issue No 1 highlighted in the original media release was among the recovered items. Police are still trying to identify the man who brought the comics to the shop and no arrests have been made.
Anyone who has any information about the break-in or the whereabouts of the remaining comics is asked to contact the VPD Property Crime Unit at 604-717-3328, or anonymously through Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
