Two Robbers Hold Up A GameStop For Cash, Consoles, and Over 100 Copies of Call of Duty: Black Ops

It was almost closing time on Saturday night at the GameStop in the Festival at Bel Air shopping center in Harford County, Maryland when two men wielding semi-automatic weapons came through the doors and had themselves a little shopping spree. The two robbers proceeded to hold up the store and take everything that their hearts desired.

They stole cash from the register, video game consoles, and over 100 copies of the unreleased Call of Duty: Black Ops. While the robbery was taking place, two customers entered the store and were greeted at gun point. They were then forced into storage area. After the two men got everything they wanted, they fled the scene and escaped in a white mini-van.

Luckily none of the customers or GameStop employees were harmed during the robbery. Police arrived on the scene shortly after the incident took place. They believe the two men involved might be responsible for another GameStop robbery in Harford County a few weeks prior to this incident. No arrests have been made and Police are currently looking for the two men responsible for the robbery.

What is it with people stealing this many copies of Call of Duty? Last year, a man from Meadville, PA stole 100 copies of Modern Warfare 2. The only difference was, he did it after the game came out.

      well, they can tell by LOOKING at the gun. most likely a handgun, and most handguns are semi-automatic.

        Automatic weapons aren’t semiautomatic weapons.

      Well stores don’t get games that early in advance, so I am sure they were playing it safe. Because how dumb would they look robbing them and demanding Black Ops when they don’t even have it, LOL

        All games are coded to show sold or unsold and to show if their legit copies or not hence how all the people who bootlegged reach were able to be banned and not the people who just legitimately got it early.

    Another thing is that this game is suppose to be ‘better’ than MW2 with all the new tweaks. Like no quick-scoping. People love to hate MW2. I still play it yet I hate the hell out of that game. :/

    100 copies, they will defiantly sell some online. They could probably find away to track that.
