Four Men Arrested for Stealing 219 Games from Toys “R” Us
Four New York City have been arrested for conspiring by stealing videogames from Toys “R” Us’ up and down the East Coast. Rodney McCreary, Derrella Winfrey, Gilberto Matos and Wilfredo Matos were caught by an off-duty officer, who saw the suspects stuffing their pants with videogames inside a Toys “R” Us in Annapolis, MD.
Once the men left the store, the cop followed them to their car and called on-duty law-enforcement to apprehend the men. The police searched the vehicle and to their surprise, found 219 games and a long list of other Toys “R” US’ and a map detailing how to get to reach them.
According to HomeTownAnnapolis, the police are now investigating which stores were hit, while each of the the four men have been released on a $50,000 bond.
Believe it or not, something like this is not uncommon. When thieves have confidence on how a particular retail corporation works, they will rob as many as they can — especially if they ‘know’ they can’t be caught by store employees. The officer was just at the right place at the right time. Imagine if he wasn’t there, these guys would still be traveling around the area and looting the remaining stores on their map.
