Swedish cargo company PostNord set up cameras inside one of their delivery trucks after they suspected goods were being stolen in transit between Stockholm and Goteborg. Their suspicion came true as they witnessed, through live feed, two thieves boarding their cargo truck which was moving at the speed of 80 km per hour.
Surveillance video showed the two men climbing on to the moving truck from the bonnet of their car, similar to heists seen in reel life and then rummaging through cargo, which was filled with empty boxes as part of the plan. Empty-handed, the men tried to make their way back to their car but were arrested by cops who were waiting nearby. Their two accomplices were also arrested by police.
