How To: Rob A Truck While Driving On The Highway

high-speed-heist.jpg

This is a night-vision video from Romania's Department for Organised Crime and Terrorism (DIICOT) featuring a group of thieves (presumably a bunch of Gypsy swindlers) pulling up behind a truck on the highway and attempting a robbery. How? Hold on to your tits for this one:

It shows the gang's vehicle first sneaking up behind the truck, and once it's in position, one of the passengers...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.

What the hell were they gonna do if they DID find something worth stealing? Toss it out the back and watch it get run over by the getaway car? You know, I'd really like to think that, at some point when this dumb @$$hole is dangling by his feet on the hood of a speeding vehicle, he had the time to think to himself, "F*ck, man -- I should just get a JOB."

Hit the jump for the I'd rather just be poor.

Thanks to Joanne, who told me this certainly brings new meaning to the the term, "highway robbery". I nodded and giggled even though I didn't get it.

    I can't be the only person who thinks this looks like a 3d rendering... maybe I haven't watched enough night vision truck hiests though..

    Come on, this is most obviously fake. I could do that on 3ds max in a night.

    Airwolf did it better, they landed a helicopter on the roof of a trailer of gold bullion and robbed it!

  • Ickolith

    I like that the would-be thieves after checking the van spend an extra 30 seconds making sure the doors stay closed and aren't a danger to anyone.

    Thoughtful theft.

  • Crazy_Joe_Davola

    I believe that is burglary, rather than robbery.

  • More like pickvehicleling.

  • Tim Buchanan

    Did anyone else get really pumped for season 5 of Breaking Bad while watching this?

  • p_shep

    Yeah, I don't know about that.

  • Did a police helicopter just happen to be filming this truck in case a crime might be committed? Or is this just "universal god view"?

    yeh.....I'm thinking this was a training video. Camera just happened to be on a cargo truck that was going to be "robbed" while driving down the road. The "thief" never really opened the door and then secured the doors back to make sure they would not open while traveling down the road. Also I am pretty sure if I was driving the cargo truck, a quick brake check would thwart any douche bag trying to pull a fast and furious.

  • There's one almost every 30 minutes on the patrolled highways, they're looking for anything, ditched cars, crashes, reckless drivers...

  • I'm impressed...
    It wasn't to steal anything, it was to show it could be rl done ! >:D

  • My God the fast and the furious has struck again...
