Another XBOX 360 has been the center of an armed robbery. This time in Atlanta Georgia.
Apparently a lady had waited in line a very long time to get her XBOX 360 only to have it stolen from her at gunpoint outside Best Buy. If your going buy a 360, bring some friends, or atleast a GLOCK.
Cheers! This was reported on my local news, I will provide a link when one becomes available. What do you guys think? Just chalk it up to holiday thefts, or have the thugs gone wild(er)
i dont think its the first time a high ticket item has been stolen outside of a store before. i seem to remember furbees having the same problem. its a hard thing for a criminal to resist, they know the 360 will fetch a fortune on ebay. they also seem some woman alone at night carrying the 360 in plain view, easy target.
for people buying them, carry a backpack with you and slip the 360 in there before going outside. at least you dont advertise what you carry.
