This is all kinds of crazy, scary, ridiculous, and downright unbelievable, but this video purportedly shows thieves attempting to rob a truck while it’s barreling down the highway somewhere in Romania.
The video almost looks CG at times, but it was apparently shot from afar by the country’s Department for Organised Crime and Terrorism (DIICOT) using specialized camera equipment. It shows the gang’s vehicle first sneaking up behind the truck, and once it’s in position, one of the passengers (who presumably drew the short straw that morning) climbs out of the sunroof and onto the hood while another holds his legs. Using special tools the thief then cuts the lock and opens the truck’s back doors, only to find nothing worth pinching, so the gang aborts their Ocean’s 11-like stunt.
Surprisingly, this apparently isn’t the first time the gang has used this ‘highway robbery’ trick. Which is why the DIICOT was filming this latest attempt, instead of trying to foil it, in a continued attempt to build a case against the perpetrators. [YouTube via Nothing To Do With Arbroath]
