Michigan State Police announced Thursday that one suspect is in custody and three Ford Mustangs have been recovered after “four to five” of the sports cars were stolen this morning from a Detroit-area factory. 

The pursuit for the vehicles began around 3:20 a.m. after the Flat Rock Police Department notified area authorities of “four to five stolen mustangs being taken from the Flat Rock assembly plant,” according to investigators. 

Officers from the nearby Woodhaven Police Department first observed suspects attempting to fill the Mustangs with gas, however, they “fled upon seeing the officers,” Michigan State Police said on Twitter. 

Troopers eventually detained the driver of a 2022 Shelby GT500 after the individual ran out of gas and drove “up the grass embankment of I-96” in Detroit, police added.

“[A] trooper blocked the Shelby from rolling back onto the freeway with the front of his patrol car causing minor patrol car front end damage,” Michigan State Police’s Metro Detroit Division said. “The lone occupant (driver) of the Shelby was taken into custody without incident and lodged at the Detroit Detention Center.”
