    G-Spot, as always.

    So. A truckload of games, namely the new Brothers in Arms game, had its shipment stolen, and the police managed to stop a truck with stolen plates, carrying--you guessed it--the stock of the games the truck had. The truck was impounded and the thieves were accounted for.

    Or were they?

    The next morning, the police awake to find that their safe storage was broken into, and the truck was missing, later to have been found picked clean of its contents. The stock of over one million USD/640,000 pounds was stolen, reclaimed, and stolen yet again. [​IMG]

    I don't know, just a "...wow." moment for me, I guess. Carry on.

    Edit: Then again, this IS The Sun we're talking about. I wonder if aliens were involved.

    I've heard that they've already made arrests in the case (considering the article GSpot references is dated as it is), but that still is egg on their face for allowing that to happen. What's amazing is that people actually tracked down that specific truck and bailed it out. I mean, they even drove it out of the storage from the sounds of it. How in the hell does that work!?

    Inside job, I bet.
