The robber of a GameStop in Nashville, Tennessee wanted to make sure he got the loot he was looking for, so he called ahead and asked the store to hold all of it before his Wednesday morning robbery.

WSMV reports the thief called the store one hour before opening and asked an employee to set aside an Xbox One along with games “Call of Duty: Ghosts,” “NBA 2k14,” and “Just Dance 2014,” so he could buy them up for his kids later in the day.

After the store opened that morning the caller showed up and robbed the store at gunpoint, taking the reserved items valued around $700 total along with $600 in cash from the register.

According to multiple Nashville news stations, surveillance footage reveals the robber sat in a gray late model Nissan Versa outside the store for two hours before robbing the store. Security cameras inside the store and an employee description reveal the thief to be in his 20s, at least 5 feet 10 inches tall, and weighing more than 200 pounds wearing a light-blue jacket and black mask covering his face.
