Truck Carrying $170,000 in Rock-Band Games Hijacked at Gunpoint - Dec 15, 2007 05:23

" It fell off the back of a truck."

Nobody was hurt during the heist, unless you count Harmonix, MTV Games and EA, as well as the 1,000 people who would’ve eventually bought this awesome game.

The heist wasn’t for 1,000 copies of the standalone software—we’re talking 1,000 units of the $170 bundle.

From the article: “The robbers kidnapped the truck driver and held him at gunpoint while they unloaded the cargo.

“…Authorities say they don' t have any suspects but believe it was an inside job because the thieves knew that the truck, which featured no obvious sign of the goods it held, was worth hijacking.”

EA rep Bryce Baer said, " We' re glad no one got hurt. We hope these guys end up forming a rock band in jail."
