How To Rob a GameStop: Dig a Tunnel

It seems GameStop is doing something right when it comes to store security. Apparently they’re now employing forcefields or laser grids or auto turrets, because one burglar was so daunted by breaking into the front of the store, he broke into the one next door — then tunneled through the wall.

GameStop’s crack team of security experts had not thought to reinforce their stores’ drywall, it seems.

Police in Greenville, Tennessee, have arrested Steven Paul Archer of Chuckey, Tennessee, and charged him with felony burglary. The cops are alleging Archer nicked $5,342 in merchandise and another $288.55 in cashy money from the shop — certainly a deep cut into GameStop’s record sales from the holiday season.

GameStop wouldn’t comment to Kotaku on the robbery, but for the suspect to have moved out five grand in merch, he probably had to go back more than once through his little hobbit door. In my favorite fantasy scenario of the crime, he had several British accomplices, a network of tunnels, and Steve McQueen riding a motorcycle to Switzerland.

However, there are easier ways of getting those Call of Duty: Black Ops Prestige Editions.

Via Kotaku.
