One Arrest, $500,000 Recovered From Canadian PS3 Heist

One Arrest, $500,000 Recovered From Canadian PS3 Heist

Remember in the middle of last month someone jacked two trailers outside of Toronto and made off with $US1 million in PlayStation 3 and PSP merch? Cops have made an arrest and recovered half the stolen property.

It’s not known if the suspect, a 39-year-old man, is the person who actually stole the goods or someone merely in possession of them. But having more than 2,000 games and 1,600 PSPs/PS3s isn’t exactly “Really, I just got a great deal on Craigslist.”

As to that, cops are still warning area shoppers that any crazy cheap PSP and PS3 deals could be stolen goods. So I’m sure the legitimate used market there appreciates this guy, too.
