1,300 Xbox 360s Stolen
According to a report published by The Star, a Canadian newspaper, 1,300 Xbox 360s were stolen in one fell swoop early Sunday morning in Mississauga, a city in Southern Ontario. The crime took place at around 4 a.m. at an industrial trailer yard, when four or five suspects dressed in their best casualwear stealth gear stole an entire 52-foot trailer full of Xbox 360 game consoles. The suspects attacked and subdued an on-duty guard, and left him bound underneath a nearby trailer. The guard sustained minor injuries but is expected to make a full recovery.
Local police have cautioned citizens about accepting potentially stolen goods at a discounted price and have stated that anyone found with a console from the heist could be charged. The trailer along with its precious gaming cargo have been valued at roughly $780,000.
