Initially, officials said that five Ford Mustangs were stolen from the plant as the thieves drove passed a Ford Security Guard that was guarding the gate.
It was later determined that the final number was six after the Michigan State Police located one of the Mustangs driving northbound on I-75, which resulted in a pursuit, officials say.
After the short-lived pursuit, the suspect was taken into custody, authorities say.
Police say that three Ford Mustangs have been recovered so far.
The other three remaining are Brittany Blue and Grey in color.
