Ring of BMW Plant Workers Reportedly Steal $4 Million In Parts


How's this for making a couple of extra buck on the side. According to reports, a gang of 18 workers at BMWs plant in Munich stole up to 3 million ($4 million U.S.) worth of auto parts from the German automaker for years. The thieves would then sell their ill-gotten booty through Internet auctions.

These workers would stop the lines for fake quality control checks and make off with the goods. The gang stole everything from blank keys to wheel covers to gear sticks, and the most lucrative item turned out to be reselling seats.

They were caught by BMW's own internal investigators discovered the thievery and passed it along to local police. The gang allegedly transferred their profits to foreign bank accounts, partly in Turkey and at least three ex-employees are currently in custody.
