Reuters News is reporting that armed robbers stole truckloads of smartphones, tablets and computers late Sunday, after holding workers hostage in a factory near Sao Paulo. Police estimate the value of the stolen products at 36 million dollars, although Samsung says that figure is too high.

The seven armed robbers apparently hijacked a bus carrying workers to the factory, disarmed security guards, and held approximately 100 workers hostage for a period of four hours, while 13 additional attackers loaded the stolen goods into seven trucks. Fortunately, none of the workers were hurt.

State police have footage from security cameras and are investigating the robbery. Police believe that the thieves had inside help, but at present have no suspects.
