KINGSPORT — A Kingsport man has been arrested after allegedly stealing more than $5,000 worth of property — including furniture, rare coins and 60-year-old comic books — then posting them for sale on his personal Facebook page.

Kristopher B. Kincer, 31, of 3109 Tiffany Court, is charged with aggravated burglary and felony theft. According to a Kingsport Police Department incident report, the victim called police at approximately 2 p.m. Thursday.

He said he was in the process of moving out of an apartment on Barnett Drive, discovering the items missing when he returned to his former residence. A police report lists 28 separate types of items as stolen, ranging from multiple pieces of electronic items and tools to a Hank Williams painting and fishing equipment.

The police report also identifies nearly $3,000 worth of missing collectibles: baseball cards, vintage comic books, coins and vinyl records.
