Father Sends Toddler To Steal Nintendo Consoles

The New Hampshire Police is currently looking for a man who sent his infant daughter in a prize machine to steal Nintendo consoles. The father snuck his daughter inside the machine as she could fit inside the typical BarBer Cut Life game cabinet and take the whole box of Nintendo consoles out.

As it stands the man has been caught on video during the crime where we can clearly see that he instructed his girl to get the Nintendo consoles out along with other console gadgets. The incident took place at the Mall at Rockingham Park.

The security was quickly made aware of the situation after a woman got to know about the plans this unknown man was trying to achieve. This woman was a hostess at the restaurant just across the machine who told the reporters at Union Leader:

Two people came in and I heard them say, ‘That’s so unsafe.’ So I went outside and all I saw was the toddler’s head peeping out of the front of the machine.

According to the hostess, they went off with at least a couple of Nintendo consoles:

There was a Nintendo Switch and a Gameboy DS. They grabbed multiple prizes, but those were the two I saw. Then I just saw them walking up the escalator

As it would have been best if the kid was not shown in the video, therefore, the police decided to blur the toddler in the video that has been posted online by Salem PD. Police are looking for help from the general public and any person who is asked to identify is told that the stealer of the Nintendo consoles is a bearded Hispanic male with 20 to 30 years of age, seen wearing a black Sig Sauer baseball cap, black shorts with an Under Armour belt and a blue T-shirt.

Although, Nintendo Switch is a secondary console in the U.S still the number of Nintendo consoles sold to date are up to 700 million, making it a sought after console.
