The force is not with California man as police seize Star Wars collectibles believed stolen

  • Print

RIVERSIDE, Calif. - Police in California are looking for the rightful owner of some valuable Star Wars memorabilia after deciding the man who was carrying the items had succumbed to the dark side.

Riverside police Detective Adam Levesque said Monday that members of a police gang unit discovered the "Star Wars" poster, collector cards and other memorabilia after they approached the man downtown.

Levesque tells the Riverside Press-Enterprise (http://bit.ly/1wpwQtk ) that the man said he had "found" the items, but the Jedi mind trick didn't work. Detectives thought the story wasn't credible and only aroused further suspicion.

Police didn't say how much the collectables are worth, but they're asking the owner to come forward.

The name of the suspected thief wasn't released, and police have not yet announced any arrests or charges.
