Video shows Curb Your Enthusiasm star allegedly stealing pricey comics from store in the US

Buffer is accused of being a repeat offender

Actor Ray Buffer is facing accusations that he stole comic books worth hundreds of dollars from a San Diego store.

Southern California Comics accused Buffer, who has appeared in hit television shows ER and Curb Your Enthusiasm, of stealing the comics, and shared footage on social media that appears to show him swiping the comics.

The store claimed he has taken more than $600 worth of comics from them. A Facebook post shows footage of a man inside the business who appears to take comics by concealing them under his shirt.

“This is Ray Buffer. Our camera captured him stealing comics by concealing them in his shirt,” Southern California Comics said in the post. “We discovered the crime and watched the surveillance video until we saw this. We are sending all the info over to the police.”

This comes after a similar incident in Metropolis Comics in Los Angeles involving Buffer as well.

On this occasion, the store’s co-owner Alania Rice can be seen confronting the man who appears to have comics tucked under his shirt.

After being ordered to leave, the man appears to pull comics from under his shirt and places them back on the table.

Rice confirmed to the New York Post that she believes this was also Buffer.

The San Diego Police Department has confirmed that a police report was filed about the theft at Southern California Comics.

No charges against Buffer have been reported.

“We offered him the choice of either returning our property (we know what he took because an earlier part of the video has him holding the books) or we turn it over to the law. He emailed us and claimed we are harassing him,” Southern California Comics said in the Facebook post.

Buffer had very minor roles in single episodes of several television shows, including CSI: Miami, Gilmore Girls and Cold Case, according to his IMDb page.
