Bold bandits have made a pricey BMW headed for home the hottest item at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit.
Police tell television stations WXYZ and WJBK that they are searching for a $140,000, gray-colored 7 Series BMW with New Jersey license plates after it was stolen Wednesday night in front of the Westin Book Cadillac hotel.
WXYZ says the BMW 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 out of the garage and handed it to the transporter. Two car thieves jumped in and took off after the handler stepped away.
The car is equipped with BMW Assist, which locates stolen cars.
