Authorities in Kinston, North Carolina are looking for two men suspected of stealing thousands of dollars' worth of video games from a local Wal-Mart on Monday.
Police spokesperson Woody Spencer told area news site WCTI12 that the two suspects took the games from the Wal-Mart between 1:45 a.m. and 12 noon on Monday, May 12. The store is open 24 hours.
There's no word on how the suspects, seen in the surveillance image posted here, were able to steal the games, or which games they made off with. Kinston is about 90 minutes outside of North Carolina capital city Raleigh.
In March, Wal-Mart launched a video game trade-in program in stores across the country and online.
This isn't the first robbery tied to video games this year. In January, a man called a GameStop in Nashville, Tenn. and asked the employee to set aside an Xbox One and copies of NBA 2K14, Just Dance 2014, and Call of Duty: Ghosts. He later showed up and robbed the store at gunpoint, also making off with $600 from the register.
