Mzansi Shook by Video of a Car Stolen in Less Than a Minute in North West Province
Several South African online users were disturbed after viewing footage of a vehicle that was stolen with ease and stealth, Briefly News reports.
The footage was posted by Vehicle Trackers (@VehicleTrackerz) on Twitter and according to the post, the Toyota Hilux GD6 was stolen in less than a minute at Islands Spar in Hartbeespoort Dam, North West province.
The video shows a minibus drive around a parking lot before it eventually parks next to a Toyota Hilux bakkie. A few minutes later, the bakkie reverses out of the parking bay and drives out of the area with the minibus closely following from behind.
