- Broadway comic shop ripoff: Have you seen this umbrella-toting burglary suspect?
Phoenix Comics and Games reports this image was captured after a costly break-in which a thief took off with the Broadway shop’s safe full of cash and valuable collectibles. According to police and the store on the December 14th overnight incident, the suspect hid out in the building’s shared bathroom before hatching his plan:
He waited til about 1:30 AM to emerge, then disabled our camera and attempted to break into the Metro PCS store, then us. He managed to get in and evade our security system, broke into our cash office and over the course of about 5 hours stole the drop safe through the back door / garage.
If you can help identify the suspect, give 911 a call. It’s also possible the 40” x 20” x 20” drop safe got ditched somewhere nearby. Let police know if you see a big, black safe.
- 10th/Prospect update: The investigation of the man found early Sunday morning with a slashed neck along 10th Ave E has concluded the incident was not criminal, SPD tells CHS.
