Pro Tip: If you live in San Antonio, do not take a job at the GameStop. The chain has been robbed three times in the last week. The latest heist happened on Tuesday night when a couple of marauders busted through the doors, brandishing guns, and corralled the no-doubt terrified employees into a bathroom where they tied up them up with Duck Tape. The thieves vanished with a cash register, and it took the employees over 45 minutes to free themselves from their bonds.
On Tuesday, a different store was boosted when a persons unknown pried open the doors of the place in the early morning and absconded with a bunch of games.
The third incident this week: On Monday afternoon, police say a criminal walked into a third Game Stop location and said he was he was armed with a gun and knife. He left after employees handed over some games.
The police say these incidents are probably not related, but it begs the question: Is Game Stop a particularly attractive place to rob, and if so, why? I guess a staff full of gamed-out young people isn't too imposing to criminals...
