Over 7,000 Nintendo Wii game consoles – worth over $2 million dollars – were stolen from a distributing warehouse in SeaTac over the weekend, and detectives are asking for the public’s help in locating the van and trailers they were stolen in.
Employees at Seattle Air Cargo in the 19100 block of Des Moines Memorial Drive (map bel0w) said the theft occurred sometime between 9 p.m. Saturday night and Noon Sunday.
The suspects used forklifts on the premises to load up two 53-foot trailers and a box van with at least 64 pallets of the game consoles.
Both Trailers are 53-feet in length, white in color and have the name “McKinney” on the side. The box van is a large International van with “Seattle Air Cargo” written on the doors (note: Seattle Air Cargo is NOT written on the side of the box, only the doors).
