Ninja sword taken from card shop returned by buyer

The Associated Press

ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — A katana sword that was missing from an Anchorage card shop has been returned.

KTVA-TV reports surveillance video shows a person dressed as a ninja leaving BOSCO'S Comic, Cards & Games with what looked to be the Japanese-style sword.

Employee Eric Helmick said in an email that a man bought the sword from the thief and brought it back to the shop Thursday after hearing on the news that it was stolen.

Helmick said the man waited at the shop for Anchorage police officers to arrive and told them what happened.

The sword was slightly damaged.

He said the shop's staffers are thankful this odd situation wasn't worse and that they all got a chuckle out of it.
