Holiday heist: Grinches steal 7,000 Wii U consoles from SeaTac airport warehouse

This could be the holiday heist of the decade. A band thieves broke into a warehouse at Seattle Air Cargo last Saturday night, loaded up two semi trucks with about 7,000 brand new Wii U gaming consoles, and then drove off, according to ABC News. Those game consoles are worth about $2 million in total, a heist that SeaTac Sgt. Cindy West described as a scene “straight out of the movies.”

As reporter Eric Johnson notes, the thieves “stole a motherload of Nintendo.” He continued: “Once the rigs were loaded, the trucks presumably pulled away and cried Wii, Wii, Wii all the way home.”
