    BERLIN (AP) - Authorities conducted a search of automaker
    DaimlerChrysler's offices in Stuttgart in connection with the illegal
    delivery of trucks to Iran, a prosecutors' spokeswoman said Saturday.

    Customs inspectors searched the offices Nov. 30 on suspicion that
    trucks officially bound for Saudi Arabia were instead delivered to
    Iran, Stuttgart prosecutors' spokeswoman Tomke Beddies said. Beddies
    said that the company itself had alerted the authorities to the

    Prosecutors are still investigating who at the company was aware of
    the delivery.

    "The names of those responsible are not known," Beddies said.

    Beddies would not comment on specific details of the case, but the
    Focus weekly reported that the case concerns 453 trucks that could be
    converted for military purposes.

    DaimlerChrysler supports the investigation, the company said.
