FREMONT, Calif. (AP) - Northern California police have arrested nine people and recovered $2 million in stolen electronics after they say they broke up a massive auto burglary ring.

Fremont Police announced the arrests Wednesday.

Several Northern California law enforcement agencies joined forces a few months ago to investigate a surge in auto burglaries. Investigators said the evidence led them to a gang operating on the east side of the San Francisco Bay, which in turn led them to a man they said was buying the stolen equipment.

Police last month seized more than 2,000 stolen laptops stored in a rental unit and found in a tractor trailer investigators pulled over near Oakland, California. Investigators believe the vehicle was headed to the Port of Oakland so the laptops could be shipped to Vietnam.
