Someone, or some group of people, located in the UK have stolen $1.1 Million (USD) worth of video games. The games, which were first stolen from the shipping driver while he dozed and then later from the "secure" police lockup, included seven separate pallets of goods.

All of the games were PlayStation 3 titles. There were several copies of Grand Theft Auto IV, and over 16,000 copies of the new title, Brothers in Arms: Hell's Highway.

The police have issued at statement on the matter.


“We are pursuing a number of lines of enquiry, including eBay transactions where a number of the games have been potentially identified as being advertised for sale. Arrests have already been made in respect of this.”

After the initial theft of the pallets from the truck, the goods were taken to a secure police facility. Mere hours after this, the games were stolen once more and have not yet been recovered.
