Burglar Sneaks Into GameStop but Leaves Empty-Handed
According to WPXI.com, a man attempted to rob a Pittsburgh-area GameStop Tuesday by cutting a hole in the roof. Taking a cue from Solid Snake, the man crawled through the ceiling, navigating electrical wires and air ducts, and dropped down into the store. At that point, security cameras caught the man trying to open the front and back doors, both of which were locked. When he realized he would have to carry his loot back up through the ceiling, the man abandoned his grand plan. He pulled a large steel cabinet underneath the hole he had formed in the ceiling and climbed back out. Around 3 a.m., police arrived at the scene and used dogs to search for the man, but did not find him.
We wonder if this bumbling burglar wore a black turtleneck and skullcap, too, as he has obviously watched too many movies and played too many video games. At least he didn't try to rewire the cameras or disarm the security system, as he probably does while sitting on the couch holding a plastic controller. Maybe he should just try online theft instead; everybody knows physical copies of games are so last year. [From: WPXI.com, via Joystiq]
