Don't Miss: This How to find Fingerlings in Stock

Wal-Mart, probably more often than most other stores, surely suffers from a lot of theft, especially now that you can do it without a hassle, but video games are a bit different, since they're locked away in cases that you can only access after you wait 2 hours for an employee to help you.

Maybe they just didn't want to wait through the long line for the one cash register out of 20 that was actually open, but the two youths took a bunch of games out of their cases, and stuffed the discs down their pants. They allegedly took over $1,200 worth of games. I guess they were wearing those big, baggy jeans from Nautica.The perps then took the pilfered games to the next-door GameStop and sold them for cash. When Wal-Mart realized the games were stolen, they checked GameStop and asked if anyone had sold the games in question, in one bulk amount, and traced the transaction to the thieves. Well, that, and the Wal-Mart security tapes were more than enough evidence. This thing's just got "stupid criminal" plastered on it from every level.

Full story. Via Wal-Mart
