    There have been two seperate robberies from yards operated by Hellmann Worldwide Logistics. The first robbery involved a truck hijacking. The truck was found later, sans £260,000 of Xbox360s. Yesterday, a gang stole £750,000 worth of Xbox360s old west style. They drove along side a lorry in what's believed to be a Range Rover and Rover saloon, and signaled the driver to slow down. When he did, the thieves assaulted the driver, hijacked the lorry, and drove away. The empty lorry was found later on A38 in Minworth, Warwickshire. The manager of Hellmann Worldwide Logistics says:
    Police are looking for any information about the robberies, and are warning people to be on the lookout for people selling Xbox360s in shady places, such as in a pub, at a car boot sale or off the back of a lorry.

    They would of had to do some decent intel to find out which lorry was taking the goods and in which route, if they stuck to the same time and route regular then it serves them right lol

    There is a chance the driver was in on it also! Just my suspicious mind working over time!

    :cool:

    i dont know about quality/performance-wise, but definately selling the $600 ps3 would be better than the $400 360

    Seems like an insider job for sure. How else would they know what truck/route to hit. History proves that the UK has the most, big inside jobs.
