Man Accused of Stealing Buzzy's Clothing from Disney World Arrested

So, the police are investigating BDD for the theft of Buzzy's clothing and they are investigating BDD for the theft of HM props, but they aren't investigating him for the theft of Buzzy?

That's because Buzzy wasn't stolen. Some people thought he was stolen because WDI whisked him out outside the chain of command. And that's why the police report says that they learned it was stolen from that time frame.

But jump to the present, and there's no mention of an investigation into the theft of Buzzy himself. So, why would Disney report Buzzy's clothes missing and HM props missing but not file a report of the theft of Buzzy himself? Cuz he wasn't stolen, rumors to the contrary heard back then notwithstanding.

A report of what officers heard is not the same thing as a report claiming it happened. Because, they heard an incorrect rumor.

Look, I was the biggest skeptic of any talk that he was stolen. It seemed ludicrous that someone could steal a whole animatronic, much less someone you'd suspect was being watched closely after a reported theft in the same area months earlier.

But this is in an official police report complied six months later. For the third time, the line in the report states: "We had also recently learned that the entire Buzzy animatronic was later stolen from the attraction, separately from the clothing."

This is not just "a report of what officers heard" at the time. This was released YESTERDAY.

An official police report is infinitely more reliable than any unnamed insider who won't reveal their source.

Let’s not forget the report that named his blue hat and red jacket were stolen, along with his hands (which have been gone for multiple decades, and his gloves have been gone for over six and a half years (which, when taken, exposed his hydraulic mech, creating the illusion that his hands were chopped off)) that was completely inaccurate. Not disputing this one though

He's just a kid, give him a break...wait, are you talking about Dreamfinder? If so, he's just a kid
I know in the other thread months ago this was discussed, but Spikes is 24. He's an adult. And regardless of their age, anyone lining up with Spikes is not exactly showing the best judgment. In the immortal words of Kenny Rogers (google him, kids)...

You've got to know when to hold 'em
Know when to fold 'em
Know when to walk away
And know when to run

I read this as they learned of the theft in November, not six months later. It even says he was questioned about the theft in November.

"Detective Jessee Hinson and I spoke to Spikes in late November to determine if he had any information on the location of the stolen items. We had also recently learned that the entire Buzzy animatronic was later stolen from the attraction, separately from the clothing. Spikes denied any firsthand knowledge of the thefts, but provided vague information of people we could look into, but would not provide last names or specifics. Spikes stated he would contact us if he heard anything."

I feel super weird about this. Why don't we have a police report for Buzzy specifically? Why is there one for just his clothes, and just the Haunted Mansion clothes, but not the animatronic himself? Why didn't Disney report him as stolen?

I think it's important to note that the police report says "We learned the animatronic had been stolen," which isn't "Disney reported/Disney confirmed the animatronic had been stolen," or "We learned from Disney the animatronic had been stolen". The second you try to type anything about Buzzy/Cranium Command into Google it immediately autofills it to 'stolen'. Looking up anything about him will bring up tons and tons of information about him being apparently taken. It doesn't say where they learned this information...

Please don't flame me, I'm not trying to be argumentative, I'm just personally trying to hold out hope until we get an official statement from Disney over where he is...this whole thing makes me terribly sad...
