BMW workers arrested for stealing $4 million worth of parts from production lines

Here is some interesting drama taking place in the automotive industry. A BMW worker and an employee at a car-parts supplier were arrested on Nov. 24 after being suspected of stealing seats and fittings worth some $4 million from the production lines in Munich.

Police said that the two detainees and another BMW employee are suspected of faking production orders and siphoning off the parts to sell them over the internet.

BMW declined to comment.

Police are investigating whether another 15 people were involved in transporting the products and whether the amount stolen may be higher.
