According to this Sun report, 16,000 copies of Brothers in Arms: Hell’s Highway were stolen from a delivery lorry – and then re-nicked after the haul was impounded by the police.

“Shutters at cops’ secure depot were smashed open and the vehicle driven off before being checked for fingerprints or DNA,” says the piece.

A police spokesman said: “We are pursuing a number of lines of enquiry, including eBay transactions where a number of the games have been potentially identified as being advertised for sale. Arrests have already been made in respect of this.”

The loot was stolen in Northampton while the driver rested. The games were just PS3 discs, apparently.
