Video game thieves zapped: Police

Four New York men were charged with stuffing stolen video games down their pants in a Maryland toy store, according to this report:

The four New Yorkers walked into the store at 2115 West St. just after 7 p.m. Police said they milled about the aisles, perusing the game systems. They then set their sights on a video game display case, police said.
Jerome Erwin, an officer with the Takoma Park Police Department, was off-duty and shopping with his two sons at the toy store when a noise from the video game department caught his attention.
Police said Erwin saw McCreary and the younger Matos walking out of the store with video games stuffed down their pant legs and waistlines.
