According to reports, a ring of 18 workers at BMW
's plant in Munich have been stealing from the German automaker for years. It seems the individuals would stop the lines for fake quality control checks and make off with the goods to be sold on the open market. The most lucrative business reportedly centered around reselling seats through internet auctions.
BMW's own internal investigators discovered the thievery - but not until €3 million in goods ($4 million) was stolen - and reported the matter to local authorities. At least three ex-employees are currently in custody. Thanks for the tip, Gregg!
