Brazen thieves stole up to $4-million worth of Dell notebook computers at gunpoint from a warehouse in Los Angeles, and police Monday were trying to track down the bandits.
Five men pulled up about 11:30 a.m. Friday at the warehouse in the 19200 block of South Western Boulevard in Harbor Gateway and ordered a security guard to open a gate, Los Angeles police Officer Mike Lopez said.
The assailants, four of whom wore masks, tied up the security guard and backed two semi tractors into the lot. They hitched to two trailers containing more than 7,000 laptops and drove away.
One of the trailers was found empty Saturday morning in Commerce, Lopez said.
Police did not release further identifying information about the suspects.
The heist is under investigation by the LAPD’s Auto Theft Section. Anyone with information about the theft is asked to contact police at (818) 832-7510.
