SEATAC, Wash. (AP) — A King County sheriff’s spokeswoman says thousands of Nintendo Wii gaming consoles were stolen from a SeaTac, Wash., distribution warehouse over the weekend.

Sgt. Cindi West says the thieves are believed to have driven two tractor cabs to the warehouse. They used forklifts to load two 53-foot-long trailers and a box van with at least 64 pallets of the consoles, then drove off with everything.

KOMO-TV reports the value of the theft is estimated at more than $2 million, including the stolen vehicles.

The white trailers have California license plates and the name “McKinney” on the side. West says the box van has Seattle Air Cargo written on the doors and bears a Washington license plate.
