PHOENIX — A Florida man was arrested by Phoenix police after trying to sell stolen comics books worth nearly $100,000.
Phoenix police report that on January 8, a man later identified as Phillip Weisbauer went to a Phoenix comic book store to negotiate the sale of four comic books with the store manager.
The comic books are said to be worth about $97,000.
Weisbauer left the store, but returned two days later to haggle with the store owner.
When he left the store after his second trip, he was followed by police to a home near Shea and Saguaro boulevards in Fountain Hills where he was later arrested.
Police reportedly found four comic books, which were reported stolen from a man in Boca Raton, Florida.
Weisbauer, who is from Royal Palm Beach Florida, has been charged with theft and trafficking in stolen property.
