Police last night arrested five men in connection with the theft of £4.2m worth of Samsung mobile phones.
The devices were taken on Sunday from a warehouse in west London.
According to the Metropolitan Police, 9,649 handsets were recovered yesterday from a flat in west London and a nearby van, leaving around 14,000 phones still missing. Samsung deactivated all the A300 phones after the theft.
Police said that when the five men were arrested at the flat "there were phones all over the place".
Samsung had offered a £200,000 reward for information leading to the return of the goods.
"The money helped to loosen a few tongues," said Detective Inspector Morgan O'Grady. "The rest [of the phones] are going to be difficult to shift."
