A trio of what appears to be not-so-bright, crooked gamers was nabbed by RCMP following a brazen robbery at a Port Hardy suite.

Police said three male suspects  — ages 21, 17 and 15 — burst into an apartment at 7077 Highland Dr. late Sunday night.

The older male was the only one in the group not wearing something to cover his face.

He did, however, carry a machete he used to hold the three occupants of the apartment at bay while two young suspects swiped electronics.

These items stolen include a flatscreen television, Xbox 360 console, HDMI cable, Xbox 360 controller, iPod Nano, Xbox games, movies and a digital camera.

Police arrested three males a short time later and a search warrant was executed at a neighbouring apartment where most of the stolen property was recovered.

The 21-year-old male was charged with robbery, break and enter and mischief. A 22-year-old male was charged with possession of stolen property.

Both remain in custody for a court appearance in Port Hardy on March 27.

The two youth have been charged with robbery and disguise with intent and have been released on their promise to appear in court at a later date.
