Man Pulls Bank Style Heist on Video Game Store
Most video game addicts would do just about anything to get their hands on a free copy of their favorite game. But few would go as far as to pull off the kind of heist usually reserved for a bank robbery.
In Greeneville, Tennessee, 33-year-old Steven Archer was arrested last week for digging a tunnel into his local GameStop, and walking away with thousands of dollars worth of merchandise.
Police say the man started digging on January 4, after breaking into a vacant building next to the game store. When all was said and done, Archer allegedly made off with nearly $300 in cash, and more than $5,300 in games and electronics. Now he faces jail time.
