FREMONT, Calif. (AP), Mar 01 - Authorities are investigating an armed robbery at a Fremont technology firm by 15 masked gunmen who made off with computer parts.
Fremont police say the robbers tied up, blindfolded and gagged several employees on the loading dock of Unigen Corp. on Sunday morning. They were wearing matching black clothing and armed with automatic rifles and handguns.
Sgt. Chris Mazzone says the robbers spent a half-hour loading computer parts into a truck. One of the employees was able to get free and call police after the robbers left.
Mazzone called the heist sophisticated and says the victims only were able to say that the robbers were all male.
Unigen is still conducting an inventory to determine exactly what was stolen.
Unigen manufactures memory chips among other products.
