An inside job: That's the latest develpoment around the biggest high-tech heist in Bay Area history.

The San Jose Mercury News reports two of the nine men arrested for stealing $37 million worth of computer chips actually worked for Unigen Corporation.

The Fremont company was robbed on February 27. The next day, 28-year-old Pierre Ramos and 31-year-old Leonardo Abriam apparently showed up at work as if nothing had happened.

They along with seven other defendants will appear in court Wednesday to face charges. If convicted they could face life in prison.

The California Attorney General's Office in Alameda County says six other people connected to the crime are still at large.
