“Call Of Duty: Black Ops” Heist Probed

Armed gunmen make off with 100 copies

If you have a copy of the "Call of Duty: Black Ops" video game in your possession, chances are it's hot.

The game doesn't go on sale until Tuesday.  But some thieves in northeast Maryland got their hands on more than 100 copies of the game. On Saturday night, they staged a covert operation at the GameStop in Bel Air. 

At least two men were involved in the robbery, the Harford County Sheriff's Office said.  The men, who were armed with guns, planned  the heist for closing time at the store.

They stole four cases full of the "Black Ops" game.  They also got away with cash and video game systems.

Sheriff's office spokeswoman Monica Worrell said anyone who has the game before Tuesday shouldn't have it.  The sheriff's office asked residents to call the authorities if they're offered copies of the game before its official release.
