Authorities recover 1,000 stolen Android tablets

NORCO, Calif. (AP) -- Authorities in Riverside County say they've recovered 1,000 Android computer tablets stolen from an electronics store and arrested two store employees.

The Riverside Press-Enterprise (http://bit.ly/1pgRrf9 ) says a total of 1,400 Zeepad tablets _ valued at a total of $90,000 _ were taken from the Norco store on June 6.

Sheriff's deputies learned that tablets were being advertised online and posed as buyers. Undercover agents met with two men and they were arrested on Tuesday. The 1,000 tablets were found after a search of a home and a storage facility.

Authorities say Nanak Singh and his cousin, Amrik Singh, both of Riverside, worked at the store.

They were released from jail on bail Wednesday and couldn't immediately be reached for comment.
