CCTV footage shows one of the three thieves unlocking the doors to a Range Rover Sport in just 40 seconds while the other two thieves waiting.
By the time the car alarm went off, the thieves jumped inside the car and drive off.
The car belongs to a family-of-four in Harborne, Birmingham. The victim, who is a 36-year-old mother-of-two, said: “Me and my partner were sleeping and I then got up to feed my baby at about 1am”.
“My husband then heard our car alarm go off at 1.40am so he looked out of the window and to his horror, there was a group of masked men jumping into our Land Rover Sport.”
‘He quickly jumped out of bed and alerted me, but by that time, they had driven the car away. It was an extremely horrible and shocking moment, these individuals clearly had no fear in committing a crime.”
“We have had the car since 2014 and were thinking about buying another one but the theft has put that plan on hold for now.”
The family said they keep the keys in a metal-lined pouch which uses ‘relay technique’ to stop thieves from stealing the cars.
“What was even more strange was that the keys were kept in a Faraday pouch which is designed to prevent the car key fob signal from being picked up by an external device. This clearly wasn’t effective.”
West Midlands Police are now investigating the theft of the red Range Rover.
