A source within UPS has revealed that three employees have been fired for stealing copies of GTA IV.
"They're not selling them, these people are stealing one copy," a worker told websiteArs Technica. "We had tips from people inside, and some of them were discovered at intermediate hubs... it's easy to spot: flaps torn, some boxes are re-taped."
The employee said that the situation wasn't normal for big-name game releases, but GTA IV was enticing enough for many workers to risk losing their job.
"It's kind of funny, isn't it?" he added. "It's a game about theft, and people are stealing it. And I get to terminate them."
More disciplinary hearings are scheduled for today.
