The Buzzy theft at Walt Disney World remains unsolved, two and a half years after the animatronic was stolen.
In an interview with The Orlando Sentinel, the man charged with stealing and selling items from Disney World denied stealing the Buzzy animatronic.
Spikes had been charged with five felony counts, including dealing in stolen property and grand theft, but prosecutors abandoned all but the stolen property count, to which Spikes pleaded no contest.
Scheduled to begin Jan. 21, the trial is now listed as cancelled on the Orange County Clerk of Courts website. The only upcoming proceeding in the case is a plea hearing scheduled for Feb. 4.
Newly-released video shows Orange County detectives asking alleged Disney World thief Patrick Spikes about the Buzzy theft.
Patrick Spikes is set to stand trial beginning Oct. 28 on five charges, including that he stole and sold costumes from the Haunted Mansion.
25-year-old Patrick Spikes has been charged with stealing and then selling costumes from Haunted Mansion, as well as entering an off-limits area in Epcot.
After the theft was mentioned in a May 17 arrest warrant, Orange County Sheriff's Office clarified to Orlando Rising that the Buzzy animatronic "is stolen" and the theft remains a "very active investigation."
