IGN.Com have broken the news that an absolutely massive raid has happened, and 7000 poor Nintendo Wii U's are now missing!
“Adventurous thieves have stolen around 7000 Wii U consoles worth around $2m from SeaTac airport in Seattle, USA.ABC News quotes Sgt. Cindy West, who says ” I’ve been a cop for 28 years, and I’ve never seen anything like this.”
“This has come straight out of the movies.” The thieves broke into an air cargo warehouse and made off with 7000 Premium and Basic Wii U bundles worth a total of $2.28million according to Eurogamer's calculation.
“The robbers loaded the consoles into trucks using the warehouse's forklifts sometime between 9pm on Saturday night and noon on Sunday and made off with them.”
“They are expected to have ditched those trucks later on, but the Wii U consoles have yet to surface. Unless the robbers have extremely large families to cater to with Christmas gifts, police expect to see them for sale online.“If we don’t get any tips ahead of time, it will be the selling of these consoles that will lead to their capture. It’s gonna be pretty hard to hide 7,000 Wii game consoles,” says Sgt West.”
