Around 20 thieves with automatic weapons raided the facility in Campinas during the evening of July 6, subduing some 200 workers and guards in a four-and-a-half-hour ordeal. The raiders kidnapped eight employees and used their identity documents to gain access to the plant. Two workers – both security staff – were held as hostages during the raid though thankfully no-one was injured.
