Breaking: Roush Performance Tractor-Trailer Stolen From Metro Detroit

Sometime after 6pm last night, a tractor-trailer belonging to tuning firm Roush Performance was stolen from in front of a shop in Westland, Michigan. This morning, a Facebook post from the official Roush Performance page called on all followers in the area to keep an eye out for the missing big rig.

The Roush Performance truck and trailer are pictured above, both painted red with the company’s distinctive, square “R” logo, and the phrase “American Muscle: Redefined” printed on both sides of the trailer. The Roush Performance Facebook post asked anyone who might have seen the truck, or possess information as to its whereabouts, to contact the Westland Police Department.

Fortunately, since Roush Performance posted the call to action earlier in the morning, one of the firm’s Facebook followers spotted the truck in the area. The rig has since been recovered, hopefully unscathed, although it would seem that the culprit(s) behind the theft were not caught.

    Does Ford still have a Security team? Whomever is responsible for allowing these thefts should be fired. Placing a guard at all lots isn’t infeasible that could call Police and putting tracking devices in ALL vehicles in lots should be less expensive than the thefts. If Security doesn’t have enough personnel then this is poor thinking. If this went on for a week understandable. For months someone needs a frying pan to the head!
