Jan 14, 2011

When you really, really want something, it can be hard not to find a way to get it. Of course, if you're thinking about stealing something, then you shouldn't do it. Obviously for Steven Paul Archer, he didn't get that memo. Archer has been recently charged with felony burglary, after he had managed to get into an empty storefront next to a GameStop, and then dig his way through the connecting wall and into the videogame retail store where he subsequently stole quite a bit of merchandise.

According to the report, Archer got into the empty storefront located next to the GameStop in Tennessee. Once inside, he got to work on digging his way through the wall that connected the empty store to the GameStop. There's no word on how long it took him to accomplish his goal, but Archer did manage to dig through, and gain access to the store. Once inside, Archer removed $5,340 in merchandise, and an additional $288.55 in cash.

Archer was captured and arrested for the aforementioned charges.
