On Sunday, a group of 15 men armed with automatic rifles and handguns jumped six employees of Unigen, the Fremont-based maker of memory cards and wireless internet adapters, in an early-morning heist at the company's loading docks on Warm Springs road. (Note: maybe take down those driving directions?) Unigen employees were tied up and locked away while the robbers loaded their loot into a moving company truck. Cops, including CHP's cargo theft task force are investigating.
If this whole thing sounds like something out of Hollywood, it's because smuggling black market computer chips was the exact same crime that kicked off six seasons of Nash Bridges.
