$2.28 million worth of Wii Us stolen from Seattle airport

Written by Peter Scott

Washington police are reaching out to the public in an effort to track down thieves who stole 7,000 Wii U consoles from an airport warehouse.

The heist was pulled off on Saturday evening. The merry band of tech thieves simply drove into a Nintendo distribution site inside Seattle Air Cargo and loaded them up with band new consoles using forklifts.

Employees got whiff of the heist on Sunday morning, only after they saw a bunch of empty pallets on the floor and realized that a couple of trucks are missing as well.

Police sergeant Cindy West said the heist was like something “straight out of the movies.” However, West is confident that the thieves will be nabbed.

“If we don’t get any tips ahead of time, it will be the selling of these consoles that will lead to their capture,” said West. “It’s gonna be pretty hard to hide 7,000 Wii game consoles.”
