Fugitive Caught With Hand in Video Game Bin

September 25, 2009 -

A wanted fugitive in Lee County, Florida, was having problems supporting his drug habit. So he hit his local Wal-Mart and tried to leave the store with a bunch of Nintendo DS games that he hoped to sell for some heroin, according to a news report.

A News-Press story said  Daniel Larson, 32, tried to leave the Cape Coral store with about $120 in games stuffed in his pants and shoes. He pushed a loss prevention officer who confronted him, but was subdued. The little shopping jaunt brought charges of violating pretrial supervision, larceny, resisting a property recovery retail merchant, using a false identification that adversely affects others, forgery of a public record certificate and violating parole.

Apparently the theft was one of his milder crimes, as his rap sheet included armed robbery and kidnapping. He had gotten out of an arrest on Sept. 5 using a fake ID.

The story goes into a few details on Lee County's booking procedures and Wilma Flintstone is mentioned. Gotta love some of today's legal procedures.

Re: Fugitive Caught With Hand in Video Game Bin

What if me and a crew of guys started hijacking trucks full of games? Is that stealing or piracy?

Re: Fugitive Caught With Hand in Video Game Bin

That would be stealing, however if you were to rob a ship full of games, that would be both.

Only idiots steal shitty bargain bin games that normal people aren't crazy enough to buy.

Re: Fugitive Caught With Hand in Video Game Bin

Shouldn't that be "Only heroine junkies would be stupid enough etc etc"? :-P

ZenConster - Good, it's a BS law that exists to just allow hate basically. Glad people are standing up to it. Sadly it should never have passed to begin with though.03/31/2015 - 8:39am

E. Zachary KnightApparently there is an item duping glitch in Bloodborne. I loved those glitches in old Final Fantasy games. They were great. Nothing like infinite Excaliburs for Ninja's to throw.03/30/2015 - 12:58pm
Papa Midnightis no market for these games. There will be no intreospection whatsoever. It's either that or they blame piracy.03/30/2015 - 11:35am
Papa MidnightI'd like to take this time to reiterate the utter mess of a PC port that is Dead or Alive 5, which is missing significant amounts of features on PC in comparison to it's console counter-part. When sales go poorly, I'm certain the excuse will be that PC03/30/2015 - 11:34am
