The recent string of electronic thefts has escalated recently to include break-ins at the Guild of Technology headquarters and Gyrtex. While the devices stolen from the Guild of Technology are said to not be “very important”, our source at the guild tells us that the members are still extremely upset, especially since the guild headquarters is known for having a very complex and effective security system.
Anton van den Burg, CEO of Gyrtex, was kind enough to meet up with one of our reporters, and seems somewhat distressed about the thefts. "After the scandal involving the previous CEO [Henry Perkins], I had hoped that we at Gyrtex would be able to work on our projects in peace, at least for a little while. These thefts have put us behind on some of our more recent innovations- not so much that it will effect the company in any significant way, mind you, but it’s still frustrating".
Comissioner Montoya has issued a public statement about the crimes, saying that their primary suspect is currently the disgraced tycoon Henry Perkins. The search for Perkins has intensified, and anyone with information as to his whereabouts is asked to contact the police as soon as possible.

From the astoundingly inventive monster trucks (especially the Violet Defiler, built by Safeguard’s own Mauveine) to the stellar half-time show, Safeguard’s monster truck rally did not disappoint, and many citizens are waiting with great anticipation to hear whether the event will be a regular occurrence.
