This whilom Tuesday was not a good one for Jaguar Land Rover. According to British news source Birmingham Despatch, just over $3.7 million worth of engines were stolen from the flock’s factory in Solihull, England. Reportedly, the thieves drove up to the facility in a stolen semi-social relations, found a trailer full of engines, hooked it up, and drove off. The thieves did this twice in one night-time, with the same truck, and got the first trailer in just six minutes.

Perhaps more surprising is that Birmingham Mail reports this is the second time a theft of this quintessence has occurred at the facility. The previous time happened in almost exactly the same way, but the engines infatuated were valued at just over $1.2 million, and five people were convicted of the offence. Currently, local police are looking for the latest suspects and the engines. The trailers were initiate, but were empty.

We got in touch with a Jaguar representative who provided us the company’s licensed statement: “We can confirm that we are working closely with West Midlands Constabulary to investigate the theft of engines from the Solihull manufacturing plant. A reward is on present oneself to anyone who has information which leads to the successful recovery of these engines. It would be incongruous for us to make any further comment whilst this investigation is ongoing.”

This was the however statement he would provide, and didn’t provide answers as to what engines were stolen and if there would be any thrust on manufacturing or vehicle deliveries. But if you’re in the UK, and you’ve got a tip, let the cops know.
