This is the astonishing moment a thief swiped a delivery driver’s car as he dropped off a takeaway.
The driver had left the motor running as he made his delivery in Thorneycroft Road, Bilston, on Monday, August 10.
CCTV footage – which you can view above – shows the driver pull up at 10.46pm.
He then gets out and walks up a path with a bag of food, leaving the vehicle running on the opposite side of the road.
Seconds later, the brazen thief walks into shot – and makes a beeline for the car.
He opens the door and jumps in, just as the deliver driver comes down back down the path.
But he can only look on helplessly as the car disappears from view.
The theft was reported to West Midlands Police.
A spokesman for West Midlands Police said: “CCTV lines of enquiry are being pursued.”
