The LA Times reports today that a truck with over 1,000 boxes of Rock Band was hijacked last weekend. The robbers kidnapped the truck driver, held him at gunpoint while they unloaded the truck and then released him after the deed was done. For those interested in the math, the thieves got away with $170,000 worth of merchandise.

According to authorities the circumstances of this hijack are very rare, as the thieves actually kidnapped the driver and drove around for an hour -- the kidnapping charges carry a life sentence. Our big question: How do you inconspicuously store and fence 1,000 Rock Band boxes? May we suggest checking the Canadian border? We hear they're getting a little desperate up there.
