In an official announcement, Jaguar Land Rover remarked, "We can confirm that we are working closely with West Midlands Police to investigate the theft of engines from the Solihull manufacturing plant".

"It would be inappropriate for us to make any further comment whilst this investigation is ongoing". We heard the lorry came in at 10.30pm on Tuesday through gates at D1 then drove to the Lagoons depot.

Sources claim the criminals obtained paperwork from the site before leaving - making their escape easier. According to the Birmingham Mail, it was £3 billion (about $3.7 billion). Apparently the same sources indicate the thieves had a second run after unloading the first shipment of stolen goods in the Coventry area.

Incredibly, the same lorry is believed to returned to the factory a couple of hours later before hooking up another trailer and driving off with more auto engines. They said they planned to strip the engines and sell them for parts.

The West Midlands force described it as a "large scale theft" of Jaguar Land Rover engines, which was believed to have taken place at the Lode Lane site between late night Tuesday and the early hours of Wednesday. Investigators have located the empty trailers used in the theft and have asked public's help in solving the crime. The thieves were caught and convicted past year; they had planned to dismantle the engines and sell the parts, the paper reported. Once entering the factory grounds, the thieves found a trailer full of engines, hooked it up to the truck and went on their merry way within six minutes. Obviously, anyone with information that could lead to a resolution is encouraged to contact the Solihull Police.
