Game store robber called ahead to pre-order what he was about to steal

A video game thief in Nashville, Tennessee called ahead to make sure his loot would be ready and waiting when he arrived.

Police say the suspect called and reserved an Xbox One and some video games from the GameStop store near Rivergate Mall. He told the clerk he was buying the items as a gift but was on his way to work, so would need the order ready to pick up when he arrived.

Once he walked inside the store he pointed a semi-automatic handgun at the clerk before grabbing his bag full of pre-ordered goodies, plus about $600 from the cash register. The suspect then forced the clerk onto the ground before running out.

Police describe the suspect as a black male, about 20 to 30 years old, approximately 5'10" or 5'11" and 200 to 250 pounds. He was wearing all blue, including a blue mask, with white gloves and brown boots. He also appeared to be unshaven under the mask.
