$500K in chargers stolen from Union City warehouse

UNION CITY, Calif. (AP) — A technology company says thieves stole a half-million dollars' worth of phone chargers from its San Francisco Bay area warehouse.

Brian Westphal, chief marketing officer of UNU Electronics, says the thieves gained access by cutting a 2-foot by 3-foot hole in large metal loading doors at the facility in Union City.

Westphal says they got away with three pallets full of chargers and phone accessories.

The San Francisco Chronicle reported Tuesday (http://bit.ly/1tsqdrc) that the company has put up a $10,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of those responsible.

Officials are also warning customers to be on the lookout for unauthorized sales of the products.
