GameSpot is reporting
that there was an armed robbery held at the Electronics Boutique store in Stafford, Virginia, USA yesterday morning. The target was Microsoft's newly released Xbox 360 console.
The armed robber held the store manager at gun point, forcing him to hand over two Xbox 360 consoles before the thief made his getaway.
Fortunately, the local police forces responded quickly and took the thief into custody shortly after the alarm was raised by the store.
According to the report, "store employees were reluctant to discuss details of the robbery"
, because the police consider the attempted robbery to be an ongoing criminal investigation.
We understand that the store is still open for business as usual.
Is the Xbox 360 worth spending time in jail for, or do you think the thief was not quite right in the head? Discuss the craziness in the forums.
