Robbers Steal 100+ Copies of Call of Duty: Black Ops Before Release
Posted on Monday, November 8 @ 10:07:37 PST by Nicholas TanSome people just can't wait to sell stolen games on Craigslist.
Two robbers armed with semi-automatic handguns stole cash, game systems, and more than 100 copies of Call of Duty: Black Ops from a GameStop in Harford County, right before the store was about the close on Saturday night. Two by-standing customers were forced into the story's storage area. Thankfully, no one was hurt during the incident. This is the second armed robbery at this particular GameStop in the last three weeks.
It's quite obvious that this crime was pre-meditated - that the crime happened while GameStop was closing, that the criminals went after four boxes of Call of Duty: Black Ops the day before they were going to be released for sale, and that this is the second time this has happened. It seems these two men knew when and where to go in the store.
So far, no one at GameStop corporate has returned any press inquiries relating to the incident. As someone who knows some GameStop employees personally, I can assure you that robberies happen at GameStop frequently. Some of them say "at least once a month" like they've gotten used to it. GameStop stores have very little defense, are generally small, and have games and systems that cost a lot compared to their relative weight. Many employees have expressed their concerns, asking themselves why they should be held at gunpoint on a monthly basis for very little pay.
Either way, everyone should be pissed. I say that if these robbers like Call of Duty: Black Ops so much, a team of CIA agents should track these ****ers down and show them what a real video game looks like.
