    Samsung Brazil Factory Robbed at Gunpoint of 40,000 Devices Valued in the Millions


    You know your product is a success when your factories are raided by armed robbers to steal 40,000 units of your devices. Such is the case with Samsung recently. One of their factories in Brazil was robbed at gun-point by a group of hijackers. Supposedly up to 20 gang members were involved in the heist.

    The estimated value of the stolen devices has not been confirmed and there is a wide range of estimates from $6.3 Million to $36 Million. The devices stolen included smartphones, tablets and notebook computers. Here's a quote with a brief description of the robbery,

    After stopping the shuttle on its way to the factory, 7 armed assailants took over the vehicle while colleagues took all but two of the eight employees originally on board to a remote location, where they were set free.

    Just before midnight, the assailants proceeded with the two other employees to the factory, where they disarmed security guards, gathered the rest of the plant's employees and made sure none of them could communicate with the outside.

    With the coast clear, the attackers then allowed 13 other culprits, driving the getaway trucks, into the factory. The robbers, communicating with one another by radio and cell phones, then proceeded to load the vehicles with the loot.

    Using stills allegedly taken from the factory security cameras, local news media showed images of the alleged culprits, dressed in black and wearing dark headgear, roaming about the factory and pushing crates of goods toward the trucks with pallet loaders.
    São Paulo authorities are currently investigating and hope to make arrests soon.
