Update: Superman Collection Thief Caught!

The 37-year-old Armbruster was actually arrested for an unrelated incident yesterday afternoon when Granite City Police responded to the robbery of a 76-year-old man, who allegedly received minor injuries from the suspect who robbed him of jewelry and cash. After his arrest, Armbruster was linked to the theft of Meyer's Superman items. This lead to the recovery and return of all of Meyer's items according to an official police statement.
Our thief is a man who preys on the mentally disabled and elderly. What an awesome human being. 

But there is good news. A poster left this comment on the original story:
Mr. Meyer stated he's giving away the extra donations to a charity or children's hospital, and offered the following statement:
People were generous to me; this is how I can be generous in return
I love stories with a happy ending!
