Thirty-two year-old Seiji Saihara was arrested for allegedly stealing a 10-year-old boy's Nintendo 3DS XL. It wasn't just any 3DS XL, however. It was a limited edition Pokemon one.
According to Sankei News, the incident apparently happened this past February in the city of Nishinomiya, which is near Kobe, Japan. Saihara allegedly stole the Pokemon 3DS XL and five games from the basket of the boy's bicycle, while the kid was playing in the park.
Saihara then allegedly sold the limited edition handheld and the games at a used game shop. One of the child's friends spotted the handheld at said game shop, and it was possible to confirm that it was his by checking it against the warranty.
Saihara has confessed to stealing the Pokemon 3DS XL and the games from the fifth grader.
