Train Heist Gone Wrong: Thieves Attempt to Steal 2024 Chevrolet Colorados and GMC Canyons

Just because you watched the train heist scene from Fast Five doesn’t mean that it could be replicated in real life. A group of thieves found this out the hard way when they attempted to steal some new 2024 Chevrolet Colorados and GMC Canyons contained in some train cars near Gomez Palacio in Durango, Mexico.

The Train Heist Gone Wrong

Sneaking into the Ferromax rail yard around 1 a.m., the thieves targeted stationary train cars housing the coveted 2024 Chevrolet Colorados and GMC Canyons. Their attempt at unloading the trucks turned into chaos when a passing patrol car detected suspicious activity. In a desperate escape, the thieves left behind damaged trucks, with one Chevrolet Colorado visibly dented and a GMC Canyon reportedly totaled after colliding with another train.

The Aftermath

Images shared to the South Central Region Emergencies page showed one dented Chevrolet Colorado hanging outside the open door of a shipping container, as well as images of a new GMC Canyon that was left on the tracks completely totaled that was reported to be hit by another train.

While no arrests have been made so far, the thieves would not have been able to get far, as vehicles are shipped with a minimal amount of fuel to deter would-be thieves.

While this train heist involved only a couple of trucks, both the 2024 Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon have already seen enough delays, with production costs and limited supply chains on top. Hopefully, insurance will be able to cover the cost of the Colorado Z71, which has an MSRP starting at $40,200. Meanwhile, the GMC Canyon Denali, whose MSRP starts at $51,000, appears to be totaled completely.
