The cars were first reported stolen from the General Motors plant in Lansing just after midnight Monday, Michigan State Police said in a tweet. When troopers flooded the Interstate 96 area to look for the cars, they quickly found them. “Traffic stops were attempted, but all the vehicles failed to stop and multiple pursuits ensued,” which sent multiple police agencies through multiple counties, state police said on Twitter.

The cars, all Chevrolet Camaros, crashed after the chases, as visible in pictures tweeted by state police.

Police arrested nine men who now face a list of charges, including fleeing or eluding police, receiving or concealing a stolen vehicle and conspiracy to commit a criminal act, WJRT reported.

The five Camaros have a value of approximately $375,000, according to the state police.

In a statement to WILX, General Motors said: “We are cooperating with local law enforcement to recover stolen vehicles from GM’s Lansing Grand River Assembly Plant. We’ll be enhancing security at the plant and surrounding parking lots.”

State police said that neither the officers nor any of the suspects were injured.
