Bag and names hold clues to owner of stolen Nintendo Wii
Jan 24 2008 by Andrew Hirst, Huddersfield Daily Examiner
POLICE are anxious to trace crime victims who have had a Nintendo Wii stolen.
Officers have received one which they believe may have been stolen just after Christmas – and it could have even been a present.
The Wii is an interactive computer sports game, usually played through TV, in which players devise their own named characters.
On the Wii recovered by police 16 players – known as Miis – have been devised.
These are the main clues to tracing the victims and the names include Seb, Pheebes, Nicks, Ellie and Evie.
The Nintendo was found in a distinctive burgundy bag.
A 32-year-old man was arrested earlier this month after property was recovered in the Almondbury area.
This man faces several charges and will appear before Huddersfield magistrates at the end of the month.
Det Con Neil Johnson, of Kirklees CID intelligence unit, said: “The Nintendo Wii looks new and is thought to have been stolen before January 1.
“It may have been a Christmas present. If anyone has devised these characters listed and the Wii has gone missing, then please contact us urgently.’’
The Wii’s ID code is 7901 7431 3732 8898.
Anyone with information should contact Det Con Lee Boswell or Det Con Joel Clayton at Kirklees CID on 01484 436685 or via 0845 6060606.
