Red Bull F1 Factory Raided By Thieves, Over 60 Trophies Taken
8 December 2014 - Autoblog
Infiniti Red Bull Racing was the victim of a smash and grab robbery in the early hours of Saturday morning, December 6.
Thames Valley Police said a silver 4x4 drove through the front entrance of the team's headquarters in Milton Keynes, England, and around six men in dark clothing stole more than 60 trophies from a massive case.
The good news is that the night watchmen on duty weren't hurt in the caper. The bad news – beyond the theft itself – is that technical director Christian Horner said, "The actions of these men mean it's likely that we will have to make our site less accessible in the future." Horner also said that many of the stolen trophies were replicas without much intrinsic value.
Police say the robbers used a dark colored Mercedes wagon as well, and it and the silver truck are thought to have foreign license plates.
