Mexican authorities say a band of thieves swarmed into a railroad facility and held security guards at gunpoint while making off with three dozen new automobiles and trucks from a storage lot west of the capital.

She says investigators are interviewing the 17 security guards
who were on watch when the robbery took place early Monday morning
but do not suspect them of wrongdoing. She says the guards were
held captive during the robbery.
Huerta says the 37 stolen cars and pickup trucks include Mazda
and Toyota models.
