One of my personal crusades is to raise awareness of the fact that Mercedes-Benz did not invent the car like they claim to, and that automobiles have been around far longer than most people realize — viable cars have been around since at least the early 1800s. That’s why I’m so delighted to tell you about the first car to be repossessed, and used to run from a cop — way back in 1867.
Two alleged thieves in the UK were caught on camera stealing a Mercedes without even touching the car keys. Police say they did it using technology called “relay boxes.”
West Midland, UK – 28 November 2017 – A pair of alleged thieves were caught on surveillance camera pulling off a high-tech (and high-dollar) crime, police in the UK say. The video shows two suspects approaching a white Mercedes Benz parked in a driveway. One person stands near the car while the other moves closer to the garage, each with a device in hand.
So, you think repossessing cars with a wheel lift is tough? Be glad you’re not repossessing ghetto rims like this unnamed “Rent-a Rim Repo Man” in this video. Just image how pissed off this owner would be to come out and find his Mercedes Benz up on blocks like this. No easy get away in your truck on this job. Kind of makes a simple repo look pale.
The narrator is priceless!
