Man pulls ‘Mission Impossible’ in pawn shop to retrieve his Xbox

In Nampa, Idaho, a 19 year old name named Olin Vickers was jailed after he cut a hole into the roof of a pawnshop to reclaim his Xbox. Vickers stole not only his Xbox, but  a camera his family pawned earlier. The burglary was discovered when  the silent alarm was tripped, alerting the police of a break in, when he entered into the back storage room.

Vickers was apprehended just as he was lowering the stolen goods on the side of the building. In more serious news, according to the Idaho Statesman, the teen also possessed the semi-automatic AR-15 — known as the civilian’s version of an M-16.  Vickers has been charged with vandalism, burglary and possession of burglary tools.

    Whoa I can't imagine how he planned and attempted to steal that gadget. I thought that only happens in the movies. Haha.

    Wow, that's a really desperate but brave move for him. He should have just bought a new one.

    I don't know if this is something that I should laugh about but...... Hahaha! The fact the he pulled a ‘Mission Impossible’ in pawn shop just to retrieve his Xbox made me laugh. But it's a bit scary because he carried guns. Good thing is that no one was killed.
