Hundreds of rare, collectible comic books were stolen from a storage unit in Shelton and police said they have arrested three suspects.
The theft was reported on July 25 after more than 500 comic books were stolen with a value of $250,000.
Police determined that three men sold a small part of the collection to a comic book store in New Haven, police said.
On Tuesday, police arrested 49-year old James Wadsworth Sr., of Ansonia, 30-year-old James Wadsworth Jr., of Ansonia, and 32-year-old Saul Salazar, of Shelton.
All three were charged with larceny in the first degree and conspiracy to commit larceny in the first degree.
They were each held on a $50,000 bond and arraigned in Derby Superior Court. Police said they were able to find the rest of the comic books.
