Robbers loot Samsung plant in Brazil - Standard Journal: Business
Judge Anita Sukola will consider a motion Wednesday accusing 22-year-old Chad Ryan DeSoto of witness tampering and obstruction of justice. Chief Prosecutor Phillip Tydingco said he has recordings of phone conversations between DeSoto and his girlfriend, Reanne Acasio, and his cousin and babysitter, Michele Fatovic. Acasio and Fatovic testified in DeSoto's defense. DeSoto has pleaded not guilty by reason of mental illness to killing the tourists and hurting 11 others by running his car onto a crowded sidewalk in a tourist area, then crashing into a store and getting out and stabbing bystanders. Tydingco says DeSoto contacted his girlfriend in the evening on the same day she testified, through a phone system in the jail where he's being held. The witnesses face the possibility of contempt charges, a crime punishable with up to five days in jail. Sukola admonished all witnesses, including Acasio and Fatovic, not to talk to anyone about the case. Witness tampering and obstruction of justice are both misdemeanors, both punishable by up to one year in prison. Also Monday, Sukola replaced one of the jurors with an alternate for not showing up to court. Sukola said she is considering admonishing the juror or holding the juror in contempt. DeSoto's lawyers are expected to wrap up their defense arguments this week. Sukola said jurors will likely get instructions next week, followed by lawyers delivering closing statements.
Guam rampage suspect accused of witness tampering - Standard Journal: Politics
The gang of heavily armed men captured eight plant employees as they neared the factory in a company bus just before midnight, said civil police in Sao Paulo state. They stole the workers' ID tags and took two of them with them as hostages as they entered the factory in the college town of Campinas. The remaining six employees were taken to an unknown location. Once inside, the gang overpowered security guards and spent more than three hours in the plant, trucking out the electronics. "They subdued the guards, took their weapons and their ammunition and told them to continue working as if nothing had happened," police Lt. Vitor Chaves told the Globo television. Some workers were held captive in a separate area and others were told to hand over their phones, so they wouldn't call the police. In total, police suspect that 20 robbers participated, carting out more than 40,000 finished products in seven trucks. Samsung said it was still trying to find out how much money it had lost. Investigators are looking at security video around the South Korean company's facility north of Sao Paulo to see if they can identify the thieves. Samsung said in a statement that it was "very worried about the incident," but clarified that none of the employees were hurt. "We are fully cooperating with the ongoing police investigation, and we will do our best to prevent this happening again," the statement said. The head of the General Investigations unit, Carlos Henrique Fernandes, hinted at the possibility the thieves worked with someone inside the factory. He told reporters that it would be difficult to commit a crime of this scale without inside help. Campinas is known for its industrial parks where high-tech companies such as General Electric, Hewlett Packard and Dell have established some of their operations. But what is often called the Brazilian Silicon Valley has also seen a spike in cargo thefts from 425 in 2012, to 657 in 2013.
