Images and videos of the stolen equipment appeared on the internet over the weekend.
An individual who claimed to be behind the theft posted around 90 video clips on the Telegram messaging app and claimed to be in possession of the source code as well.
Although Rockstar has issued DMCA notices on both Twitter and YouTube seeking to have the stolen material taken down, the material has spread across the net and continues to surface in one forum or another.
