Watch Professional Car Thieves Perform Their Craft

In this clip, watch a bewildered television host shadow a professional car thief in a ‘day in the life’ segment.

It offers an interesting study on how professional car thieves scout locations, use a computer to override security systems and transform the vehicle in a chop shop in under two hours.

Arguably the most impressive part of the video is how a gang of professional auto mechanicals disassemble and reassemble a car from its bare frame in under two hours. During this elaborate process, they essentially mount another car’s chassis to the stolen frame, eliminating all traces, before placing it on the market for sale as a “brand new car.”

Now, can anyone answer the question on what the television host’s liability is with this crime? Willing accomplice, anyone?
