5 March 2011 - A crew of fifteen thieves — ski-masked, armed, and dangerous — pulled off a painstakingly well-organized heist at a Fremont high-tech manufacturing company yesterday.[27 Feb.]
According to the Mercury-News, the robbers comprised a “sophisticated team,” bearing rifles and handguns and clad in “matching black clothing” as they entered Unigen Corporation “a little after 8:40 a.m.” Working quickly, the robbers bound, blindfolded, and gagged five Unigen employees, whose wallets and cell phones they stole.
After then stealing a “significant amount” of computer components, according to local police — as reported in the Mercury-News — the thieves fled in a vehicle resembling a moving van.
The entire heist took about half an hour.
