ROSEVILLE (CBS13) — Employees at a comic book shop in Roseville spotted stolen magic cards and set up a sting operation to catch the thieves who took them.
It happened Sunday at A-1 comics on Sunrise Avenue after the thieves were caught trying to sell them the stolen property.
At A-1 Comics, you'll find magic cards worth big money.
Store Manager Nick Barber says, "There's a few cards in the series that are now worth $10,000 to $20,000, ridiculous! When people come in with that "I don't know what I have mentality, it's pretty easy to recognize.'"
Barber says the magic community is close. "It's a small community and you get to know the people," he said.
On Saturday, employees didn't recognize two new customers with rare cards to sell.
