Batman Collection Stolen
Send up the Bat-signal!!!
The second largest Bat-collection in the country has been stolen.
"FORT LAUDERDALE - Not the shark-repellant spray, nor the goo gun, nor even the Caped Crusader's Batarang could apparently protect the country's second-largest Batman collection from disappearing.
The Miami Herald has learned that much of the Batman memorabilia owned by slain Fontainebleau heir Ben Novack Jr. is missing from several warehouses in Broward County. Sources close to the case said the locks on the warehouses were cut."
Authorities say the theft might be linked to a murder case that stretches across the country.
They don't know who has stolen the items yet but the good news is the authorities have narrowed the writers of "Under the Giant Penny" out of their investigation.
"The [Batman] stuff is gone — disappeared," said Chief Gregory Austin of Rye Brook, N.Y., police, which is investigating the millionaire's unsolved murder. Novack was found dead in a Westchester, N.Y., hotel in July."
The police didn't say if they found any rhyming riddles or clues pointing them to the dastardly criminals next targeted crime.
We here at Under the Giant Penny are willing to help the police with any clues that have been found, as any good citizens would.
