Amazon delivery driver’s van stolen in brazen theft captured on doorbell camera

Alarming footage shows the moment an Amazon delivery driver’s van was stolen by a brazen thief as he made a delivery.

The clip, captured on a customer’s doorbell camera, shows the courier’s horror as the dark-coloured van is driven off.

The delivery driver – wearing a high vis jacket and a face mask – was shown approaching a front door clutching a package.

But he then hears the sound of revving, and watches in dismay as his dark-coloured van, which was parked across the road, starts driving off.

The driver flails his arms in a vain bid to flag the driver down, shouting “Oi” and running alongside the vehicle as the van starts to accelerate away.

But the victim is left chasing exhaust fumes as the car thief speeds out of view, leaving him trailing helplessly in its wake.

The lawless scenes unfolded in Royton, Greater Manchester, last Tuesday.

A neighbour said: “The Amazon delivery driver was robbed.

“From what I can see it was all planned and the driver had been followed and they looked for the right moment to make a move and steal the van.”

She added: “I was very shocked – they drove off near the traffic lights the delivery driver ran after the van and he could not stop them it was too late.

“It made me furious.”

Luckily, police later found the van abandoned.

A Greater Manchester Police spokesperson said: “At around 5.29pm on Tuesday April 6, officers were called to a report of a van being stolen on Shaw Road, Royton.

“The driver had been delivering a parcel when the company van was taken. The empty van was located by officers at 6.24pm.

“No damage was caused to the vehicle. No arrests have been made.

“Enquiries are ongoing.”
