Batteries included - and not much else - in San Antonio theft

More than 700 vehicle batteries like the one above were stolen from the San Antonio company Exide Technologies
(CBS/AP) SAN ANTONIO - Some apparently power-hungry thieves stole more than 700 vehicle batteries from a South Texas business.

San Antonio police say the batteries were taken Dec. 1 from Exide Technologies.

Investigators said Tuesday the batteries were lifted after someone broke into the rear of the company complex in an isolated business park. The batteries were on 18 pallets.

A reward has been offered by San Antonio Crime Stoppers to jump start the investigation.
