MMOG crime on the rise in Japan: "LEGO stick up

Police have arrested a 12-year-old boy from the Kanagawa prefecture (Japan) for stealing virtual goods in an unnamed
MMOG. The boy had illegally accessed another player’s account in order to transfer goods from that account into his
own. On 11 occasions he stole items from the other player’s character to add to his own. The value of each item is
estimated to be at 100 yen (about $1)."
