In West Yorkshire, England, police are hoping that Miis may help them trace the crime victims who have had a Nintendo Wii console stolen.
Earlier this month, a 32-year-old man was arrested on property theft charges. The Wii was reportedly found in a distinctive burgundy bag.
Police believe the console may have been stolen just after Christmas and that it could have even been a present.
The main clues police have obtained to tracing the victims are 16 Miis recovered on the Wii. Authorities released Seb, Pheebes, Nicks, Ellie, and Evie as some of the names of the Miis, as well as the Wii’s I.D. code, which is 7901 7431 3732 8898.
“Nintendo Wii looks new and is thought to have been stolen before January 1,” Detective Con Neil Johnson of the Kirklees CID intelligence unit told the Huddersfield Daily Examiner.
“It may have been a Christmas present. If anyone has devised these characters listed and the Wii has gone missing, then please contact us urgently.”
