US gamers could be in for a PlayStation 2 supply shortage, because thieves have stolen a truckload of the consoles in Florida.

According to a report by website Sony Insider, police in the city have begun investigating how thieves managed to steal 28 pallettes of the console from a tractor-trailer while the driver was grabbing forty winks.

Since the driver chose not to sleep in the truck like a true trucker, the console thieves managed to get away with the vehicle too. The rig’s GPS system did plot the truck’s position several hours later, but police think the thieves have since managed to disable the device.

The theft comes after UK police were left red-faced last month when a lorry load of stolen PS3 games they had seized was nicked from their secure lock-up in Northampton.
