Trailers recovered in SeaTac Wii-U thefts; games missing

King County Sheriff’s detectives said Tuesday that two trailers and a box truck that were reported stolen Dec. 16 from SeaTac and were loaded with 7,000 Wii-U game consoles have been recovered empty.

The box truck was located Dec. 19 in Fife parked near a warehouse, according to a Sheriff's Office media release. The business logos had been removed from the truck.

One of the trailers was recovered Dec. 30 in Auburn near South 277th Street and D St. The logos and Vin# had been covered with white paint.  Additionally, “S.S. Trans” was painted on the front of the trailer.

The remaining trailer was found Jan. 2 near Carson, Calif. The trailer’s logo had also been covered with white paint and marked with “S.S. Trans.”

SeaTac detectives are working with the Los Angeles based “Cargo Theft Task Force” on the case. Detectives said that the reward in the case has also been increased to $10,000 thanks to donations from private businesses.
