Maybe it was a bunch of scalpers.
We all know scalpers love special edition stuff.

Are you saying this person who's holding a lot of the same items which were stolen is one of the culprits?

That is exactly what happened with the Cabbage Patch dolls, it was in newspapers everywhere that people were paying hundreds of dollars for them.
I think they were around $30 retail price.

'Grown' man ?
I hate to go off topic here but I don't think people really 'grow up' anymore; man, or woman.
Another way of looking at it is, people retain their youthful ways and don't 'act their age'.
Not necessarily a bad thing but some say we're in arrested development.

It doesn't seem to make a difference what item is being sought, when scarcity is factored in people will want it in exponentially increasing desperation as supplies dwindle.

People killed each other for those Cabbage Patch Kids dolls back in the 80's when there was a 'shortage' - just trampled their fellow shoppers to death while attempting to grab a stupid piece of plastic to take home for some spoiled brat.
Remaining dolls sold for hundreds of dollars each, unheard of in those days, but perfectly illustrating my point.

I mean if it turns out the person is an 18 year old it wouldn't seem so strange. Imagine if it turns out the person is like 40? I can see them getting harassed in jail about that kind of crime.

Re: Truck full of Splatoon special edition and amiibo stolen

I don't think the criminal would receive any harassment due to what they stole, in this case anyway. Actually the scalping idea is not a bad one, the guy could make a killing selling these things at a huge mark up if he is the only source of them. Of course I'd imagine ebay is not going to be an option for him...
