Earlier this month, the PlayStation 3 launch was accompanied by a handful of reported robberies, with an Elk Grove, California, GameStop reportedly having four PS3 systems and several Xbox 360 systems stolen by a pair of armed men.
Now The Sacremento Bee, which originally reported the story, is saying that police believe that two of the store's employees were in on the robbery. Two 19-year-olds who were employed by the store were arrested last week on charges of suspected embezzlement, burglary, and conspiracy, according to the paper. One of them has also been charged with filing a false police report.
Police have not yet recovered the stolen systems, and it's unclear whether or not others were involved in the heist. As for what tipped police off to the scheme, one officer was quoted as saying, "Our detectives were able to gather information that wasn't consistent with a robbery...They felt there was more to the investigation than meets the eye."
