Houston-Area Investigators Accused of Stealing Valuable Comics while working embezzlement case

Two Houston-area investigators were working on an embezzlement case when authorities said the men helped themselves to hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of rare comic, the Associated Press reports.

Dustin Deutsch, 41, and Lonnie Blevins, 39, are accused of stealing the vintage comics from an evidence storage unit in 2012 while working on an embezzlement case for the Harris County District Attorney’s Office. The suspect was accused of buying valuable collectibles with money he had stolen from his employer, a crane-manufacturing company.

Included in the collection was a first-edition Batman comic that could fetch about $900,000, the AP wrote.
