7000 Wii U consoles stolen in US theft

Two diesel trucks, a forklift and a box truck were what was needed to steal 7000 Wii U consoles, as thieves raided a Nintendo distribution site near Seattle’s SeaTac Air Cargo on Saturday evening.

As reported by ABC News, the heist occurred during a storm with the theft amounting to $2.1 million in value.

“I’d be surprised if they’re still using that truck and that trailer, but we still want people to call if they see anybody advertising for any great deals for Wii U’s on Ebay or privately, especially if there’s a large quantity of them,” explained a representative of the King County Sheriff’s Office to Kotaku.
