Crime Trackers: Star Trek memorabilia stolen from Northwest Side garage

Posted: Updated:

A local collector is missing some rare Star Trek memorabilia. It was caught on camera, flying out of his garage.

For 82-year-old Kermit Stephen, his trek to find the people responsible for stealing his Starship Enterprise has just begun.

Earlier this month, Stephen left his garage door open while he ran a quick errand.

When he returned to his Northwest Side house, he said, “I noticed that two big boxes of Star Trek figurines and memorabilia was gone.”

The thieves were caught on home surveillance video stealing the goods. In the video, a man wearing a blue baseball cap walked in first followed by a second man wearing light blue tennis shoes. Within seconds, they grabbed the boxes and left.

Inside the boxes that were stolen were an assortment of figurines, including items such as movie clips from the original Star Trek series. The value about $125.

The total value of the stolen contents was about $800. Stephen, his wife and son own Casas Adobes Coins and Collectibles. They recently purchased the items and were going to resell them.

“If they've done it to me, they'll do it to other people,” said Stephen.

That is why he wants the public to help Pima County Sheriff's Department detectives identify the men who ripped him off and the white truck they drove off in.

He said they work hard for what they have. He spent nearly 30 years in the Air Force and had five children. 

“We had a rough life when we first started," said Stephen. "Now we're starting to enjoy part of our labors and somebody else invades our privacy and takes it away from us.”

"We can't stress it enough, just lock your doors, keep your garage door closed because you never know who is watching,” PCSD officials said.

If you have information, call 911 or 88-CRIME.
