Thieves steal 37 cars from Mexican rail facility

Thieves steal 37 cars from Mexican rail facility

Mexican authorities say a band of thieves swarmed into a railroad facility and held security guards at gunpoint while making off with three dozen new automobiles and trucks from a storage lot west of the capital.
Guadalupe Huerta, spokeswoman for the state prosecutor's office, says officials do not know why the group targeted the Kansas City Southern lot where cars await transport to the U.S. and other destinations.
She says investigators are interviewing the 17 security guards who were on watch when the robbery took place early Monday morning but do not suspect them of wrongdoing. She says the guards were held captive during the robbery.
Huerta says the 37 stolen cars and pickup trucks include Mazda and Toyota models.
