Employees Steal $4,000,000 of Parts From BMW Munich

interesting article on autodebut.com about how BMW employees have been stealing millions from BMW factory in Munich, for years.

A group of 18 employees have been caught stealing from the BMW assembly line in Munich, Germany totaling a sum of $4,000,000 in parts. If that’s not interesting enough then how about this. They’ve been doing it for years.

The employees would call in fake quality control checks, stop the whole assembly process, and make off with the goods and then sell them in various markets. Interior seating was the most popular and highest-yielding product that was stolen and sold.

BMW’s very own internal investigators figured this out, but it wasn’t until the thieves made off with $4,000,000. Three employees are currently in custody.
