A man suspected of robbing a GameStop in Nashville only wanted to stop as long as necessary.
So he called the store in advance and asked employees to hold the items he planned to pilfer, WSMV-TV reported.
Police say the suspect called an hour before the store open and reserved an Xbox One valued at $500, as well as game titles "NBA 2K14," "Just Dance 2014" and "Call of Duty: Ghosts."
The alleged thief told employees he was buying the items for a kid.
He then showed up Wednesday morning and robbed the store at gunpoint. Besides taking the items that he had reserved, he also stole $600 from the register.
"It shows the individual had a premeditation to create this violent occurrence by pulling the hand gun out on the clerk," Metro police Detective Lt. Curtis Watkins told WJHL-TV. "He wanted to get out as soon as possible. He knew what he wanted and he had a plan."
According to surveillance footage, the suspect waited two hours in the GameStop parking lot in a later model gray Nissan Versa before committing the robbery, WKRN-TV reported.
The suspect is believed to be about 5'8 to 5'10, around 220 pounds and between the ages of 20 and 30. He was wearing all blue with brown boots, and white gloves, NewsChannel5.com reported.
