Havana, Florida resident Kayla McAllister was in the mood to take her 11-year-old son to a local Gamestop on Sunday so he could trade in some of his video games titles and purchase others.
Gamestop, a worldwide video game retail chain, is popular among kids and adults alike who are on a budget when buying games. They can trade in games for store credit and purchase others at a used, discounted price.
According to McAllister’s Facebook post that afternoon, when they got home after he purchased a used copy of Grand Theft Auto V they found a small pouch of meth wedged within the game manual inside the case.
Gamestop has come under fire in recent years due to their neglect of fully checking pre-owned, stocked games when they are traded in. A similar incident happened in Lake Charles, Louisiana back in September.
Although it’s a very unfortunate event, and Gamestop is definitely one to question, why is the mother purchasing a Mature-rated game for her 11-year-old son?
Video game website Kotaku reached out to Gamestop for further information and has more on the story.
