Call of Duty Thief Escapes in Waiting Getaway Car

Is it just me or are Call of Duty thefts starting to sound more and more like missions from the game?

The latest snatch and grab of the Activision shooter happened last week when a man swiped ten copies of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 from a display stand at a Tesco in the England's Bishop Storford.

The thief, described as white, aged 19-22, about 5ft 7in tall, with a thin build, was wearing a black hooded top with black jogging bottoms. After snatching the games, he ran past the check-outs and into a waiting Ford Fiesta. OK, maybe next time switch out the Ford Fiesta for something a little less embarrassing and throw in a couple of smoke grenades for good measure.
