Moment thief brazenly breaks into a white van and steals tools on another day in Lawless London
- An alleged thief wearing a high-vis jacket is seen robbing tools in just seconds
Shocking video has emerged allegedly showing a brazen ‘serial thief’ robbing vans for tools in broad daylight.
The video was recorded in Camden, North West London, yesterday.
It shows an alleged thief walking away from one van, jumping into a black car and then driving to another van just a few yards away.
The suspected tool thief, wearing a high-vis jacket, medical mask and black cap, gets out of the car before looking around to see if the coast is clear.
Then, he pulls out a tool of some kind to break the lock, opens the door, and grabs an item before jumping back into his car and driving away – all within a matter of seconds.
