Wii U Heist Results in 7,000 Consoles Stolen

By   /   3 years ago


On December 15th, approximately 7,000 Wii U systems were stolen from a Seattle warehouse. The estimated value of the heist is somewhere between 2.1 and 2.4 million.

Now, I know what you’re wondering, how could someone get away with stealing 7,000 Wii U consoles? Well, apparently, the million dollar heist took place during the cover of a storm that enabled two 53-foot long semis and a box truck to load up the systems without a problem.

In fact, the thieves had time to use a forklift to load 64 pallet’s worth of consoles onto their trucks. The missing consoles weren’t noticed until the next day when Seattle Air Cargo were unable to account for the missing inventory. Seattle police have yet to come up with any leads.

“I’ve been a cop for 28 years, and I’ve never seen anything like this,” said Sgt. Cindy West. “This has come straight out of the movies.”
