“Desperate times call for desperate measures” is typically a phrase we associate with extreme situations like starvation or poverty. But that also applies to a Japanese trading-card fan, who robbed an Omaha comic store Monday morning.
A man described as wearing a possible Darth Vader hoodie entered Dragon’s Lair Comics around 9:30 a.m. Monday and demanded box sets of Japanese trading cards Yu-Gi-Oh. Owner Bob Gellner said the retail value was only about $150.
Police have no suspect in custody, but we’re sure he’s off somewhere believing in the heart of the cards.
