Another Pokémon heist has just gone down. Taking place at Punch Out Gaming in Forest Lake, Minnesota, thieves broke into a vacant store next door where they then busted through the wall to get to Punch Out Gaming.

The orchestrated burglary was all caught on CCTV where you can see a man crawl through a small hole in the wall before discovering the camera. The owners of the mom-and-pop gaming store estimate that over $250,000 USD-worth of sealed Pokémon TCG goods were carried out from the hole in two hours.

Due to the low supply of hot Pokémon products, the owners are worried that this could be a tough situation to bounce back from as their suppliers do not even have any inventory left of the goods that were stolen, and the insurance won’t be enough to cover the losses.
