Stolen Trailers Recovered in Wii Game Thefts – but Games Still Missing
SeaTac detectives announced Tuesday (Jan. 8) that two trailers and a box truck that were reported stolen Dec. 16 and loaded with 7,000 WII-U game consoles have been recovered – but totally empty.
The box truck was located in Fife, parked near a warehouse, and the logos had been removed from it.
On Dec. 30, one of the trailers was recovered in Auburn near 277th and D Street. The logos and VIN# had been covered with white paint. Additionally, “S.S. Trans” was painted on the front of the trailer.
The remaining trailer was located Jan. 2 near Carson, California. The trailer’s logo had also been covered with white paint and marked with “S.S. Trans.”
SeaTac detectives are working with the Los Angeles based “Cargo Theft Task Force” on the case.
Detectives said that the reward in the case has also been increased to $10,000 thanks to donations from private businesses.
The City of SeaTac contracts with the King County Sheriff’s Office for police services.
