Italian investigators said they foiled a plot to steal the body of legendary Formula One racing pioneer Enzo Ferrari, according to Reuters.
In a news conference, police in Nuoro on the island of Sardinia said they suspected a gang had planned to demand ransom from the Ferrari family or company after stealing the body.
Law enforcement officials didn't provide any more details about the plot but said it was discovering during an arms and drug trafficking investigation that led to several arrests.
Ferrari, who has been dead since 1988, is buried in an above-ground family tomb in Modena, Italy--near the Ferrari plant at Maranello in central Italy.
