ROMANIA (CNN) -- It's not easy trying to rob a truck while it's moving! A group of alleged thieves are caught on camera trying to pull off something you only see in a Hollywood movie.
Here's how not to rob a truck. A vehicle pulls up right behind the target, at night, headlights off. Two guys pop out of the sunroof, and one holds onto the other as the first guy tries to break into the truck.
Looks like a heist out of the movie "the fast and the furious" only not quite as fast and definitely not as furious. No harpoons, no driver packing heat, and definitely no driving underneath.
But that's Hollywood; this happened on a highway in Romania, as the Romanian organized crime unit was monitoring gang suspects.
The video was released after 15 members were busted for stealing about $370,000 worth of TVs, cigarettes and coffee for resale.
Eventually the thief gets the door open enough to see inside. There really is a huge blind spot back there. You've seen the signs. "If you can't see my mirrors, I can't see you." And the Romanian trucker probably never saw these guys though maybe he's now seen the aerial footage.
As for the would-be robber, tossing stuff back to his vehicle doesn't seem practical. But once he got a look inside, he decided to abandon the mission. He crawled back the way he came.
Not quite the fast and the furious more like the daft and the nefarious.
