Thieves Steal A Pair Of Ford Mustang Pony Cars Straight From Flat Rock Assembly

A pair of thieves made off with two Ford Mustang pony cars straight from Ford’s Flat Rock Assembly Plant in Michigan, crashing through the storage lot gate dramatically as security attempted to take note of the cars’ information, Fox 2 Detroit reports. The theft occurred Sunday, and security was unable to gather either car’s complete VIN.

Later in the day, both cars were spotted at a local Meijer grocery store. The police showed up, causing both drivers to flee; one of the Mustang thieves, described as a 6-foot-tall white man in his 30s weighing 200 pounds, successfully got away straight off. The other thief, described as a black man with dreadlocks, led police on a pursuit that was ended due to traffic and safety concerns.

The authorities suspect that the two men entered the Flat Rock Assembly Plant grounds through a hole cut in the fence. As to how either was able to start and drive the Ford Mustang without keys, police are unsure.

Police believe that Sunday’s Ford Mustang thefts are related to numerous other, similar cases involving valuable new pony cars being taken from the Flat Rock plant.
