Actor Ray Buffer accused of stealing $600 worth of comics


Ray Buffer, an actor who had minor roles in Bullet TrainAmerican Gigolo, and Curb Your Enthusiasm, has been accused of stealing $600 worth of comic books from a store in San Diego.

Southern California Comics alleges that the store captured Buffer on surveillance stealing and concealing comics under his shirt last week. When they were able to confirm his identity, the store emailed the actor and offered him the chance to return the property, or they would contact the police. Buffer responded and “claimed we are harassing him,” Southern California Comics shared on Facebook.

The store has since turned all the information over to the San Diego Police Department, which is investigating the allegations. Jamie Newbold, owner of Southern California Comics, told EW the store will be pressing charges against Buffer and alleged that his shop is not the only comics store the actor has targeted, providing security footage said to show Buffer at Metropolis Comics in Los Angeles, taken in late September and provided by folks who work at the shop.
