Man tunnels into Gamestop Feb. 21st, 2011 @ 03:11 PM Reply

At least, that's the slightly bizarre approach taken by a man from Greeneville, Tennessee, who was arrested late last week after being caught tunnelling into his local GameStop store from an empty adjoining building.

The heist, which would perhaps have been more suited to robbing a bank than a games retailer, resulted in Steven Archer, 33, making off with almost $300 in cash and around $5,400 in games - hardly the scam of the century, but a pretty good haul nevertheless.

Sadly for Archer, he didn't have long to enjoy his ill-gotten gains: leaving a trail of evidence, the man was arrested by Detective Pat Hankins and charged with felony burglary, according to local paper The Greenville Sun.

Linkage.

Well, that wasn't very smart. I suppose it would be easy to track if you dig your tunnel from the store next door. They know that it has to be someone who would be allowed to stay in the store at night and for long periods of time... with a shovel.

Ya big dummy.

Building should really have metal plates all around them (Yes, even below them) to stop people digging in. Also, heat sensors to detect if someones in the bulidings.

If all of the above was made possible, the crimerates would go down to 0.000001%

Covering a store with metal plates is stupid as hell. It's not like people tunnel into stores often.

Lol, very unusual. It's not every day you see a man tunneling into a video game store to steal many video games. Haha, criminals these days. XD

I hope he doesn't get sued. In fact he should be awarded for such an amazing feat.

That's a rather original idea. If only I had the patience to do such a thing to get my video games.

I would have been more impressive if he'd parachuted onto the roof of the building, then busted in Mission Impossible style.
