An investigation is currently underway in the UK after a lorryload of videogames – including 16,000 copies of Brothers in Arms: Hell Highway – was stolen from a depot in Northampton, England, the Sun is reporting. Police eventually recovered the vehicle days later in the city of Leeds with the stock but it was stolen again just hours later. They eventually found the lorry a second time in nearby Bradford, West Yorkshire. Only this time minus the £600,000 worth of PS3 software that was on board.
“We are pursuing a number of lines of enquiry, including eBay transactions where a number of the games have been potentially identified as being advertised for sale. Arrests have already been made in respect of this,” a police spokesman said.
However, Ubisoft is reassuring that fans “needn’t worry as more stock is being parachuted in.”
