Two Ford F-150 Raptor Pickups Stolen From Roush Enterprises

The Ford F-Series line of pickups has been America’s best-selling vehicle for decades at this point, but those vehicles aren’t just popular with consumers – they’re also a hot item among thieves. But while automotive thefts used to be relegated to individual incidents or perhaps even vehicles disappearing from dealers, we’ve seen some more brazen crimes take place directly from Ford’s manufacturing facilities and nearby storage lots lately, with the Ford F-150 Raptor proving to be quite the popular target. Some of these vehicles were later recovered – albeit with missing parts and damage. Now, Roush Enterprises has joined The Blue Oval as a victim after two Ford F-150 Raptor pickups were stolen from the company’s facility in Allen Park, according to the News-Herald.

Roush noticed that the brand new 2023 Ford F-150 Raptor pickups were missing from its parking lot, after which Detroit police located one of them in that city and returned it to its rightful owner. Some time later, Roush was informed that the Detroit Police Department Auto Squad had recovered yet another F-150 Raptor that was apparently taken at the exact same time as the first pickup.

Both of the trucks were parked in a corral in front of Roush Enterprises and are believed to have been stolen last month, but amazingly, the thieves didn’t have to work hard to make off with them, as both had the keys sitting inside for easy pickings. Allen Park police noted that the F-150 Raptors weren’t listed in the Law Enforcement Information Network as stolen because neither vehicle had been registered as of the time they were taken.

As far as the perpetrators go, one juvenile has been taken into custody thus far, but no other suspects have been located or apprehended as of this writing.

    That both these vehicles, stolen last month, and recovered now, seemingly intact, gives the impression they were parked to cool off, or the crooks couldn’t move them or got cold feet.

    Or they had their fun and bailed

    Did the thieves do time for their crimes ?

    Somebody at Ford needs a major security update. This is/has happened far too many times to be a one off. Most companies in most industries would have long since tightened physical security of their assets. It does give pause to investors as to what other lapse and breech’s have occurred. If Ford cannot physically safeguard a a large truck, one has to wonder how they will handle the ‘reams of private data’ they will be collecting on their customers?

      Roush is a private company that among other things upfits ford vehicles with Roush packages.

      I don’t think Ford is responsible for JRI security.

        Point taken…. however that is not how it reads… new ford truck stolen… this only hurts Ford’s credibility with investors. Your brand is everything…. even in this circumstance.

    You cant believe these vehicles produced by Ford do not have tracking capability with GPS to locate them. I go on Ford app and know the exact location my vehicles are at that moment.
