We have received a curious message related to one of Nintendo’s most outstanding franchises. We are actually talking about Pokémon.
Pokémon TCG cards and other items related to the franchise are high-value items for some collectors that can fetch thousands of dollars. Recently a man was arrested in Florida after trying to steal various Pokémon items at a Walmart using cards from Magic: The Gathering or Magic: The Gathering.
Apparently, the man would have used the cards that he would have previously scanned to place them on top of other items and manipulate the scanner, so you don’t have to pay for them. Police claim that he began stealing various Pokémon items from shelves as early as July 1, 2022. He was eventually charged with retail theft, the penalties for which could include a fine of up to $400 or even imprisonment.
