Game stash truck lifted from cops' lorry lock-up

Grand Theft Auto

Reducing security risks from open source software

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.
