Armed gang steals $800G in electronics at Brazil's busiest airport, police say

An armed gang in Brazil has carried out a brazen heist at the country’s busiest airport, swiping an estimated $800,000 in tablets, cameras and computers, police say.

Authorities in Sao Paulo say ten men stormed a cargo terminal at the Guarulhos airport on Sunday, taking several guards hostage for a half hour while six men loaded boxes of imported goods into a truck, the BBC reports.

Some of the men were dressed like security guards, and an assessment by authorities revealed that 59 boxes of imported items were stolen.

No arrests have been made, according to the BBC.
