HAYWOOD COUNTY, NC (abc24.com) - A trailer thief drove off with almost $1 million worth of Xbox 360 video game consoles when a trailer was stolen from a truck stop on I-40 sometime between Saturday, November 12, 2011 and Sunday the 13th.
The Haywood County Sheriff tells abc24.com that the truck driver stopped at the Exit 47 Plaza truck stop about a mile from his home that Saturday to drop off the trailer. When he returned to the truck stop on Sunday, the trailer was gone - and so were the 2,475 Xbox 360 consoles inside it.
Authorities say the video game systems are worth $990,000 and the trailer around $15,000. They say the truck stop is very busy, so they are pessimistic about finding a witness as there is nothing suspicious about a trailer leaving the location.
