Holiday Thieves Steal 7,000 Wii Consoles From Seattle Warehouse

It seems like every holiday season we hear about a band of thieves robbing some store blind, and this year is no different. The King County Sheriff's department has begun an investigation after a group of unknown thieves stole 7,000 Nintendo Wii consoles (not Wii U) from a Seattle warehouse.

According to Seattle P-I, investigators hope to get the public's help in finding the holiday gift snatchers, who are believed to have stolen the Wiis from the Seattle Air Cargo warehouse somewhere between 9:00pm on Saturday and Noon on Sunday.

Detectives say the suspects used forklifts to load two 53-foot trailers, along with a box they drove to the warehouse with pallets holding multiple Wii consoles. The estimated value of all the products lifted is estimated at over $2 million.

The two trailers in question are white in color with the name “McKinney” on the side, while the box truck sports Seattle Air Cargo on the doors. The trailers both have California plates (4HB3365 and 4EA5521) and the box truck has a Washington plate (B40622K).

If you see any of the vehicles or have any information, be sure to contact the King County Sheriff’s Office at 206-296-3311. And, as always, keep your eyes peeled for Bowser and his lackeys.
