Police have recovered a pricey BMW used by executives at the North American International Auto Show one day after it was stolen in front of a posh downtown Detroit hotel.

Detroit Police Sgt. Eren Stephens says the vehicle was recovered Friday but did not disclose further details.

Police said Thursday that the 7 Series BMW with New Jersey license plates was stolen the previous night in front of the Westin Book Cadillac hotel. It was one of 19 brought to Detroit for press week.

Police say the cars were being loaded into a car carrier headed back to New Jersey, when a hotel valet brought the BMW from the garage and handed it to the transporter, who briefly stepped away. Two car thieves jumped in and took off.

    Stupid people! In a dying city that is trying to be better, holding a huge national event, punks had to jack a car. I bet the complain about how crappy the city is too. People have to get a grip and stop trying to continuously bring down Detroit even more.
