At least 12 brand-new Ford Mustangs and two Jeep Wagoneers were stolen from outside the Michigan assembly plants that built them on Tuesday morning, Fox 2 Detroit reports.

Thieves allegedly used a car to ram the front gate at Stellantis's truck plant to gain access to the parking lot. They made off with at least two Grand Wagoneers before authorities arrived at the scene. A video published on Twitter by Fox 2 reporter Charlie Langton shows the smashed gate and at least two Jeeps being recovered.

Details are a bit slimmer on the Mustang thefts, but of the 12 to 15 cars taken from outside the car's Flat Rock assembly plant, at least two were recovered by police. It's unclear at this time if the two thefts are related. No details on the suspects have been released, Fox 2 reports.

We've reached out to both Stellantis and Ford for comment.

This isn't the first time we've heard of thieves stealing cars straight from the factory. Back in May, five Camaros were stolen from the factory before leading police on a high-speed chase. And in June, 13 Raptors and six Mustangs were taken by thieves in Detroit.
