Bandits loot Samsung plant in Brazil

(Associated Press Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) SAO PAULO (AP) — Authorities in Brazil say a group of bandits raided a Samsung electronics factory and made off with about $36 million worth of cellphones and computers.

Police Lt. Vitor Chaves tells the Globo television network that the gang captured several plant employees and stole their ID tags. The group then overpowered security guards and spent about three hours in the plant, trucking out the electronics early Monday.


Chaves says none of the employees was hurt.

Investigators are looking at security video supplied by the South Korean company. The factory is in Campinas, north of Sao Paulo.
