A Tesla driver happened to be right behind a Toyota Prius that was robbed by thieves in a Honda Civic, and the vehicle’s camera captured the entire incident. Put simply, the victims were attempting to get onto the I-80 East at 4:30pm when the black Honda cut in right behind their car. A traffic backup gave the suspect vehicle a perfect window to get closer to the victim’s car. A passenger in the backseat got out of the suspect car, smashed the rear windshield of the victim’s car, and got away with thousands in camera gear.

The victims were Ben and Masha of Home Shots, and in just 10-seconds, around $7,000 worth of gear was stolen, which included a camera, lenses, a drone, as well as a gimbal. How did the suspect(s) in the black Honda know about this gear? They followed the couple from a photoshoot earlier.
