Bad Ops: Gunmen Steal More Than 100 Copies of Call of Duty

November 7, 2010Written by Sebastian Moss

With record pre-orders and retailer’s raising the game’s price, there is big money in Call of Duty: Black Ops, with all the people involved in selling the game set to make huge profits. Due to the high value of video games, people robbing game retailers has become an increasingly common occurrence, and for Black Ops, the ill-gotten gains have never been higher. Now gunmen have stolen more than 100 copies of the game, hoping to cash-in on the interest in the title.

Handgun-wielding robbers held up a GameStop store in Harford County, USA this weekend, taking not only cash, but also over 100 copies of Call of Duty: Black Ops, as well as game systems. According to the Harford County Sheriff’s Office, at least two men were involved in the robbery and were armed with semi-automatic guns.

Thankfully, neither the customers in the store, or the employees were hurt. It is believed that the men may have been involved in another recent robbery at the store.

Call of Duty: Black Ops isn’t out there ’til Tuesday, so anybody that has it today or tomorrow shouldn’t have it,” Sheriff Worrell explained, urging residents to call the sheriff’s office if they’re offered copies before the release date.

Black Ops is set to release worldwide November 9th.
