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.
