Thieves make off with 7,000 Wii game consoles
SEATAC, Wash. -- Thousands of Nintendo Wii consoles were stolen from a SeaTac distribution warehouse sometime this weekend and detectives are asking for your help to find the culprits.

Sometime between 9 p.m. Saturday and noon Sunday, the thieves used forklifts to load up two 53-foot trailers and a box van with at least 64 pallets of the game consoles from Seattle Air Cargo, said Sgt. Cindi West with the King County Sheriff's Office.

Both trailers are 53 feet in length, white in color and have the name "McKinney" on the side, West said. The box van is a large International van with "Seattle Air Cargo" written on the doors.

The first trailer has a California license plate of 4HB3365 with a trailer number 533457. The second trailer has California license plate 4EA5521 with trailer number 531841. The Seattle Air Cargo van has Washington license plate B40622K

Detectives believe the thieves drove two tractor trucks to the warehouse and used forklifts inside to load up the trailers and box van with the pallets of Wii games. Overall, the value of the theft is over $2 million, including the stolen vehicles.

If you have information about this crime please call the King County Sheriff's Office at (206) 296-3311 or 911 if you see any of the vehicles.
