Romanian gang attempts to steal a moving lorryJune 12th, 2012 - 10:04 pm ICT by Aishwarya Bhatt
Bucharest, June 12 (THAINDIAN NEWS) Romanian law enforcement authorities have filmed incredible footage of a gang’s efforts to rob a truck while it was speeding along a motorway.
To undertake the attempted robbery, which took place during the night, the gang positioned their vehicle just inches behind the moving lorry. In the footage scene reminiscent of those of Hollywood thrillers, two of the members of the gang then proceeded to climb out of the sunroof. One maneuvered himself onto the bonnet as the other held onto the legs of his fellow thief.
The robber on the bonnet then proceeded to break into the lorry’s rear door using a number of specialist instruments, which Romanian police officers later recovered.
Nevertheless, after opening the door the gang seemingly decided against taking the truck’s contents. The gang members climbed back into their own car and retreated.
The Romanian Department for Organized Crime and Terrorism (DIICOT) has later declared that the thieves have been involved in many successful robberies from moving vehicles. The gang started to operate this robbery method in March of this year.
