Police work to crack comic book caper

National News

Police in Moore, Oklahoma are asking for the public’s help. They’re looking to get a large collection of rare comic books back to their rightful owner.

“Its a large bunch of comic books that I guess are kind of rare,” says Sgt. Jeremy Lewis of the Moore Police Department.

The Moore Police found more than 40 boxes of rare comic books in the back of a stolen trailer. 

“It appears that this is an expensive type collection. Someone has possibly had their storage unit broken into that was full of comics,” Lewis says.

“Oh its gut wrenching to have your collection stolen,” says Buck Berlin of New World Comics. The comic store owner knows collections like the one found can be valuable.

“Some can be worth next to nothing, some can be worth millions, the further back you go the more valuable they can get, if you are talking comic books from the 40-50-60s they can be worth hundreds of thousands,” said Berlin.
