    Faking a Holdup

    Sponsored Links
    November 27, 2006 - People will do anything for a PlayStation 3, including faking a robbery. On November 16, one day prior to the launch of Sony's PS3, a GameStop employee, Robert Hodge, reported that he was held up at gunpoint. Hodge and fellow employee Gerald Keys told police that the robbers had made away with several PS3s.

    That appears to have been a lie. The Sacramento Bee is reporting that both men were arrested last week under suspicion of filing a false police report and stealing four PlayStation 3 consoles from their own store. Police did not reveal specifics as to why they believed the men were lying about the robbery. "Our detectives were able to gather information that wasn't consistent with a robbery," Officer Christopher Trim said.

    The stolen merchandise has not been recovered. However, each PS3 has a unique barcode which may allow Sony to track the consoles if they are ever connected online.

    They should have thought about it....

    C'mon now, if your gonna fake it at least FAKE IT. They should've had a couple of their buddies in masks "rob" them at "gunpoint" and take the ps3's. At least they could've given something to the police to supress any suspicions. Then again, if they were this dumb to get caught they would've started laughing on camera if they had their buddies robbing them.

    the fake holdup happened less than 10 miles away from my house. The gamestop employees faked a holdup, and sold the ps3's online. If I remember correctly, the store manager was in on the deal as well.
