They arrived to a street in the Kingshurst area yesterday to discover the four-by-four missing nearly all of its vital parts.
It was without an engine, a bonnet, doors or even an interior.

The force tweeted: “Chelmsley officers responded to a 999 call about a possible stolen car in #Kingshurst and found this when they arrived!

“It WAS a Range Rover Sport four days ago when it was stolen in Newtown and stripped for parts.”
One person has been arrested for theft of motor vehicle, they added.
Social media users responded speculating over how the car may have been nicked.
