In a flash: rash of memory chip thefts hit Valley.
Police have identified a silver minivan with a skull and crossbones in the back license plate area as a common vehicle in many of the robberies. In many instances, a woman distracts delivery workers by asking for directions. On July 26, a delivery truck at Viva Computers in Fremont was robbed of CPUs and hard drives valued at $13,000. Other firms recently targeted have been Bell Microproducts in San Jose, which has been hit several times, and Advanced Micro Devices.
