DETROIT (AP) -- Police say three Chrysler workers were arrested after the automaker tipped authorities that they may have been using illegal drugs while on break.

The Detroit News reports the workers at Detroit's Jefferson North plant were arrested Jan. 24 and haven't yet been formally charged.
Last year, Chrysler fired 13 plant workers caught by a Detroit TV station drinking alcohol and smoking what appeared to be marijuana during breaks at the same plant.

The plant produces the Jeep Grand Cherokee and Dodge Durango sport utility vehicles.

Chrysler confirmed Friday that it was cooperating with police. The automaker says in a statement that the "safety and security of all Chrysler Group employees is our first priority."

    They were very lucky to have a great job like that. Too bad they didn't appreciate what they had. There are a lot of people out there willing to take their place.

    Good for Chrysler, now GM just needs to realize they have drug and alcohol problems and take action!

    Hi Ho, Hi Ho, it's off to work we go... No wonder Jeep and Dodge's quality is poor.

    this is nothing new to the auto industry, year after year they make several bust's. You would think the automakers would do mandatory, random drug tests on a regular basics. I'm sure the quality of the automobiles would improve greatly, and lower the "RECALL" numbers.
