A vehicle was stolen in Auckland Park in Johannesburg and the video footage was shared via social media.
Intelligence Bureau SA shared the video via their Facebook page on Thursday and it’s had a notable impact on Facebook users.
The recording was seemingly captured by CCTV cameras and it shows how a man approaches a white vehicle.
The make and model remain unconfirmed, but it resembled a Honda Civic.
One can see how the man kneels down and tampers around the bumper of the car then approaches the driver side door.
Without much fuss, he opens the door and starts driving off in no time.
Social media users were left speechless by the speed of the whole operation.
Justin Judson said, “Disable the alarm, 7 seconds, break into vehicle 3 seconds, start vehicle 7 seconds! Very easy! But if they had a simple cheap diskloc on the steering wheel, the oxygen thief would have just walked on! Alarms are useless in today’s world, back to the physical security devices. people make it way too easy for them!”
Morwesi Madime simply said, “Yhooooo very scary.”
Nick Ramalamula added, “That guy has been observing that car for few days if he knows where to terminate the hooter and know that immobiliser is connected with hooter.”
Thilivhali Tshovhewaho commented, “Forget "Gone in 60 Seconds," here they do Gone in 20 Seconds.”
Isaac Eye-Zac I-zac Phora said, “I think he cut off hooter cables so that the car won’t make noise when he attempts to open the door.”
