Here at Tecca, we've seen some pretty impressive heists in our time, from the guy who stole $450,000 in fake currency to a thief who nonchalantly drove off with $1.7 million in unpopular tablet computers. But neither of those really hold a candle to these thieves, unsuccessful though they were: A band of Romanian criminals attempted to hijack the contents of truck as it speeds down the highway.
This video was taped by Romania's Department for Organised Crime and Terrorism (DIICOT), who's trying to build a case against the would-be robbers. In it, you can see a car pull up behind a moving truck. Maintaining a constant speed, the robbers climb out the car's sunroof and work on opening the backdoor of the moving truck.
Presumably, the truck didn't have much worth stealing in it — the robbers left the scene without taking anything. Still, the Prince of Persia-esque stunt made these robbers all instant stars, not that they wouldn't have preferred a degree of anonymity in their line of work.
