Game stash truck lifted from cops' lorry lock-up
Grand Theft Auto
Police have learnt the true meaning of Grand Theft Auto, after a lorry full of stolen PlayStation 3 games was nicked from their... ahem... secure lock-up.
According to a report by the Sun, shutters at a secure police depot in Northampton were smashed open to allow the vehicle to be driven away by the thieves. The truck contained seven pallets full of games totalling at least 16,000 titles, which included copies of Grand Theft Auto and Brothers in Arms: Hell’s Highway.
The blue Renault lorry was originally nabbed by police after they spotted that it had false number plates.
The cops later recovered the lorry, but unsurprisingly the game stash was gone.
Although it’s not known where the lorry load of games was originally heading, gamers needn’t worry because developer Ubisoft told paper that “more stock is being parachuted in”. Phew.
I think rockstar will put it in GTA V once they hear of it... LOL
When I read this story for the first time, it was stated that it was only copies on Brothers In Arms that were loaded onto the truck. Once The Sun gets it's hands on the story, now there's copies of GTAIV in there too, is there? The Sun wouldn't have made up that detail in order to imply the behaviour of the thieves was motivated by playing this game, would they? Nah, The Sun don't make up facts...
Is it just me?
Or does this sound like exactly like the kind of job you'd be called on to do in GTA?
Well they have to have
something to play with in the canteen when they are listening to copyrighted music played on their pa system without paying a fee, it is only fair.
Not necessarily nicked from the nick
A lot of plod car compounds are not actually at the nick , often they are on a nearby Industrial estate that at night is probably plod free. So not too much of a problem to re-purloin your plod purloined goodies!
