An undisclosed number of vehicles were stolen from a storage lot near the Cadillac Lansing Grand River Assembly plant in Michigan earlier this week.
The theft was reported to the Lansing Police Department at approximately 3 a.m. on Tuesday, March 1st. The call alleged that “several” vehicles had been stolen out of the storage lot near the assembly facility. Security personnel on-site at the Lansing Grand River plant told police that an unknown number of suspects had illegally entered the grounds and driven off in the stolen vehicles.
The Lansing Grand River Assembly plant is owned and operated by Cadillac’s parent company, General Motors, which is currently in the process of taking inventory of the storage lot to determine exactly how many vehicles were stolen, according to local Lansing news outlet, WLNS 6. Lansing Police indicated that some of the stolen vehicles have already been recovered by neighboring jurisdictions in other parts of south-central Michigan.
The storage lot is located at the intersection of William St. and S. Martin L. King Blvd. in Lansing. It’s in very close proximity to the Lansing Grand River factory, which is responsible for the production of Cadillac’s two sedan offerings in North America – the CT4 and CT5, along with their high-performance CT4-V and CT5-V variants, as well as the range-topping CT4-V Blackwing and CT5-V Blackwing. The facility also produces the Chevrolet Camaro and its variants. As such, it’s safe to assume that the stolen vehicles wore one of the three aforementioned nameplates.
As previously mentioned, it’s not clear how many vehicles were stolen, or what their makes and models are. Cadillac Society will provide more details as they become available.
