Cops thwarted a $170,000 computer chip heist on Monday, according to reports.

"Two car loads of crooks" fled from 400 East Grand Avenue in San Francisco after they had tailed a computer chip shipment from San Jose, according to the Contra Costa Times. They had been identified as potential criminals, the newspaper reported.

They were identified by the father of the computer chip deliveryman, who followed his son from San Jose to South San Francisco, where the chips were delivered. They were also followed by the two car loads of miscreants, the newspaper reported.

Jose Antonio Rivera Martinez, 55, of Los Angeles, was arrested after he was left behind. He fled after the father confronted him, the newspaper reported.

The other suspects are in a gold Dodge Caravan with license plates 6VOY107 and a white Ford Explorer with a California license plate of 6VXB701, the newspaper reported.
