THIS is the shocking moment brazen thieves ambushed a DPD van and slung packages into a getaway car in a brazen daylight theft.
Two masked men stole multiple packages from the branded vehicle as it was parked up in a residential street in Dagenham, Essex.
The delivery driver watched on helplessly as the duo nicked high value items, such as electronics and clothes, in just 60 seconds.
Working as a tag-team, one man trawled through the piles of parcels to decide which ones they wanted.
The other crook then discarded the ones they didn't want by throwing them on the floor, or chucking the desired deliveries into the back of a Mini.
Terrifying footage, which shows one of the thugs carrying a screwdriver, was shared today online.

She can be heard in the background screaming: "Stop what you are doing, call the police, call the police."
Social media users speculated that the theft occurred because the new iPhone 15 was released today.
