From Xen Gamers:

Police from Japan’s Yamagata prefecture have arrest a seventeen year old for allegedly trying to steal 17,000 yen worth of peripherals for Microsoft’s Xbox. Reportedly, the young man hid inside a local convenience store until after closing. Believing everyone had left for the evening he tried to flee with the goods through a rear exit. In his escape however, the youth triggered an alarm and was quickly apprehended by patrolling security personnel. A total of six items were recovered from the theft including several Xbox memory units.
