'Relay crime' theft caught on camera

This footage from West Midlands Police shows two men pulling up outside a victim's house in the Elmdon area of Solihull.

The pair steal the car without needing to see the owner's keys.

Mark Silvester, from the West Midlands Police crime reduction team, said: "To protect against this type of theft, owners can use an additional tested and Thatcham-approved steering lock to cover the entire steering wheel".
