Car Thief’s Multiple Break-In Attempts Caught on BlackVue Dashcam

This BlackVue dash​cam Parking Mode video posted by BlackVue Maroc, our Morocco distributor, shows a thief attempting to break into several cars and the BlackVue owner’s car multiple times.

The thief was probably not expecting this but with the video going viral (over 300,000 views over the past 4 days), he might be getting some unwanted attention as the shots from the front and rear cameras show his face clearly. 

You might think that close to ten minutes is a bit long for a “break-in” video. That’s because the thief does not just give it a try and run away. On the contrary, he shows determination, doing a lot of back and forth, going away and coming back with different tools to try and pry the car open. 

With both motion-based and impact-based buffered Parking Mode, the BlackVue dash​cam was able to catch all the action, spanning a period of over forty minutes.

At some point, the vehicle’s owner even walks by and comes close to catching our thief red-handed but the vandal gets away with it, pretending he was urinating behind the vehicle (which is parked along a fence). 

A case BlackVue Over the Cloud could have helped resolve faster

For clarity, we would like to add that the dashcam was not connected to the Cloud, so the on-screen message only mentions it as a feature that if made use of, would have helped apprehend the culprit, as the dashcam would have sent multiple Push Notifications whenever the impacts were detected.
