Alleged thieves make off with BMW from London petrol station as owner fills up

Alleged thieves were filmed driving off with a BMW from the forecourt of a petrol station in north London recently as the horrified owner of the vehicle attempted to block their getaway. Footage filmed on May 5 at a BP station on Oakley Road South in Southgate showed the desperate owner leaning on the bonnet of the vehicle as the alleged criminals begin to drive away. They appear to be willing to run him down, so he steps out of the way and they speed off. According to the filmer of the clip, who prefers not to be named, there is a spate of keyless car theft taking place in the Barnet area. "They are pulling up beside drivers that are filling up," he said. "They are using some sort of device to open and start the car," he added. Keyless car theft relies on technology that relays the signal from the real key to the criminals' device which then allows them to operate the car.
