Man Arrested for Tunneling Into GameStop to Steal Games

There are many sides of the to-pirate-or-not-to-pirate debate.  From those who think that pirating is wrong on principle, to those who think that pirating a game is a universal right, to those who love to pay money for all of their games but don’t think twice about ripping a copy of StarCraft for a friend, and more.

But there’s one thing that they can all agree on.  It’s hard to think of a dumber way to pirate games than to trying to tunnel into a retail store.

But nevertheless, 33 year old Steven Archer was arrested this Thursday in Tennessee for breaking into a vacant building and using it as a base to tunnel into his local GameStop next door.  Although Archer was not ultimately successful (that is, he was arrested), he initially got away with about $300 in cash and more than $5,300 in games and electronics.  So, that’s a pretty hefty haul.

But it bears repeating: we have the internet now.  There are far, far easier ways to do this, guys.
