In April, Prince George's County police investigated a multimillion-dollar international auto theft ring suspected of taking hundreds of cars across the Washington area each year.

In a shipping container, police found four Toyotas of various models that had been stolen from different locations in Maryland. All were headed for the same place -- Lagos, Nigeria.

Read the story here, and below follow the journeys of each car from the points where they were stolen to the warehouse where they were packed together in a red shipping container to the stretch of I-95 where police finally caught up with them.
