Last week, we reported that the Buzzy Audio-Animatronic from the Cranium Command Attraction was stolen from Epcot. Based on a theft report from the Orange County Sheriff’s Office, it seems that the Audio-Animatronic was naked when he was stolen, as his clothes were removed and stolen back in August.
The OCSO incident report claims the clothes were taken sometime between August 1-8, 2018. According to the report, his red bomber jacket, green cap and custom rubber hands were stolen. The estimated value listed on the report is $500-$600, but it is likely that these one-of-a-kind items could fetch much more on the black market.
Buzzy has sat unused for years in the now-closed Cranium Command attraction in the old Wonders of Life pavilion at Epcot. The incident report claims that someone would have had to enter via a backstage area, which again brings into question the effectiveness of security at the parks.
Earlier this month, a suspect was questioned regarding the clothing theft. Initially, the suspect refused to hand over his phone, but he was detained and the phone was taken. The suspect has not been charged with the theft of the clothes nor the figure by Orange County deputies, but was charged with resisting arrest without violence.
