actor Ray buffer A San Diego comic book store has been accused of stealing some expensive comics … and security footage appears to show him stuffing his shirt, the store says.
Southern California Comics in San Diego alleges Ray was on video stealing $600 worth of comic books, and the store filed a police report with the SDPD and turned over evidence, including their security footage, to police.
SDPD tells TMZ police took a petit larceny complaint and are investigating the incident.
The comic book store says it received even more evidence after it alerted other stores about Ray in a Facebook post before Ray was identified — and will turn it over to police.

The owners tell us that Metropolis Comics in LA sent out some similar security footage when Ray was there. In the video, the owner confronts him after seeing him pull the same move, and this time he puts the comics back down and leaves as the owner threatens to call the police.
Ray, who has appeared on TV shows like “ER” and “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” deleted all of his social media accounts after the comic book store video was posted online.

Bookstores are always on the edge of this kind of theft because some comics fetch so much money — we’ve reported on getting rare comics. The auction went for a huge amount. That’s why most stores have such large security cameras.
