Police say that the investigation began after officers received a complaint back on July 25, 2019, that over 500 rare collectible comic books were stolen from a storage unit.
Detectives later discovered that a small portion of those books were sold to a comic book store in New Haven by three men and subsequently, the rest of the books were recovered.
Police arrested those three men, identified as 49-year-old James Wadsworth Sr., of Ansonia, 30-year-old James Wadsworth Jr., of Ansonia, and 32-year-old Saul Salazar, of Shelton.
They were charged with larceny and conspiracy to commit larceny. Each were held on a $50,000 bond.
