This video clip comes days after a similar incident was shared online where a ‘high class’ Mercedes also makes off without paying. Newslite SA previously reported on this matter here
With the ever increasing prices in fuel, more and more thefts are being reported. Many petrol stations throughout South Africa now opt for you to hand over your keys, however many cars now use keyless ignition.
Looking at the CCTV footage, it appears the number plate has been masked. Attendants need to be vigilant and enforce “No reg, No fill”. Many other countries will approve the pump from within the building forcing them to pay inside and adds an extra layer of security.
Within this clip the thieves exit the vehicle with their faces on show, making this an easier case for authorities to track them down.
