You may have seen the yahoo news story covering this, if not there is many details in this post at rebelscum.

Long and short of it was Phillip wise had a rocket fett stolen and when he was contacted by the person who had purchased it, a much larger theft case was discovered. The guy who is accused of committing the theft is someone fairly well known in the community being a collector as well as having an r2d2 droid build club. I don't know the guy, but some may. Anyway not sure what all is traced back to the stolen items as a list hasnt been put out yet but if anyone has info that may help they are being asked to reach out to Steve sansweet or Phillip wise.

Ranch Obi-Wan? I swear I get trading cards from them when I buy Star Crunch snack cakes. I'm almost positive it's them.

A sad story of greed. I feel bad for Steve and hope he can recover his collection pieces. I read the story in the Guardian news: https://www.theguardian.com/film/2017/jun/05/star-wars-biggest-collector-steve-sansweet-theft
