This is one of the weirdest thefts I’ve ever seen. A Bay City man stole his friend’s Xbox 360 and Wii, and replaced them with his PS3. He reportedly did this to fund his drug addiction.
The victim, Nickolas Charo, was completely surprised to see his videogame consoles stolen, along with a GPS and $250 in cash missing when he came home. Although, he did find a PS3 in their place.
These two were close friends, with Charo telling the police that Beck must have stolen them. He also identified the PS3 as Beck’s property.
Beck was arrested, and police found some of the stolen items at his house, and Charo’s Xbox Elite was already pawned for $50.
It’s sort of surprising to me, he could have pawned the PS3 as well and would have received the same amount of money.
Such incidents are not surprising, considering a woman was punched in the face by her husband, in front of their kids, over a PlayStation.
