Burglar dressed as ninja breaks into Alaska shop, steals katana sword

ANCHORAGE, Alaska -- A katana sword is missing from an Alaska card shop after a burglar in a ninja outfit broke in.

CBS affiliate KTVA reported that security cameras filmed the costumed suspect entering the Anchorage business sometime after it closed Friday and leaving with what looked to be the Japanese-style, curved sword.

Spenard Bosco’s employee Erich Helmick said inventory is being checked but that so far it seems the sword is the only item missing. 

“The sword was the only thing we could make out well enough on the video to say for sure,” he told KTVA.

Helmick said the Anchorage Police Department responded to the incident and a report has been filed.

Anyone with information is asked to call police.
