Thieves steal 7,000 Wii U consoles

In a warehouse heist this weekend near Washington’s SeaTac airport, thieves stole 7,000 Wii U consoles, estimated at a value of $2.1 million.

“I’ve been a cop for 28 years, and I’ve never seen anything like this,” Sgt. Cindy West told ABC News. “This has come straight out of the movies.”

According to West, the bandits drove two diesel trucks into Nintendo’s distribution bay at Seattle Air Cargo. Once inside, the thieves lifted the Wii U units with forklifts onto 53-foot semi trailers waiting outside. This took place during a storm.

Workers noticed the missing inventory, as well as the vanished trucks, Sunday. Police do not have any leads at this moment, and it is not clear how many were involved in the heist.
