Grand larceny most foul!

Rancho Obi-Wan is a nonprofit museum that houses the largest collection of Star Wars memorabilia. Founded by Steve Sansweet, former director of content management and head of fan relations at Lucasfilm, the refurbished Northern California chicken ranch houses more than 300,000 Star Wars items.

And, recently, someone stole over $200,000 worth of them.

The heartbreaking thing is that it was something of an inside job, as the thief was someone who Sansweet considered a friend of over 20 years and who had personal access to the museum. Get the details in our exclusive interview below.
