A 15-year-old suspect is now in custody after four GM vehicles were stolen from the GM Lansing Grand River assembly plant in Lansing, Michigan. The stolen vehicles include two Chevy Camaros and two Cadillac sedans.
According to a recent report from local CBS News affiliate WLNS, which cites the Lansing Police Department, officers arrived on the scene around 2:45 a.m. early Thursday morning.
Reports indicate that two Chevy Camaros and two unidentified Cadillac models were taken from the GM Lansing Grand River plant lot. In addition to producing the sixth-generation Chevy Camaro, the GM Lansing Grand River plant also produces the Cadillac CT4 and the Cadillac CT5.
The GM Lansing Grand River plant is located at 920 Townsend Street in Lansing, Michigan, first opening in 2001. The facility spans some 3.4 million square feet across 111 acres, employing roughly 1,400 employees. The plant previously produced the first-generation Cadillac ATS and the first-, second-, and third-generation Cadillac CTS.
Back in September, a pair of teenaged suspects were arrested after attempting to steal two Chevy Camaros from the GM Lansing Grand River plant. Authorities received a call around 2:30 a.m. local time that two men were attempting to steal the GM sports cars from the southwest parking lot. One of the suspects collided with a concrete barrier before attempting to flee on foot, but was caught and arrested. The second suspect collided with a fence before attempting to flee on foot, but was also eventually caught and arrested.
Last November, a new 2023 Chevy Camaro was among five vehicles stolen at a rail yard in Shreveport, Louisiana. The other vehicles stolen included two 2023 Dodge Chargers, a Dodge Challenger, and a truck. The rail yard serves as a location where cars are offloaded from trains and transported to local dealerships for sale. The stolen 2023 Chevy Camaro was quickly recovered thanks to the help of the onboard OnStar system, which remotely identified the location of the stolen vehicle before disabling it.
