This is the moment thieves stole an unsuspecting man’s truck in broad daylight as he tied his boat to the vehicle.
How the incident happened
Police say the unidentified victim left his truck running while tying his boat on 3600 block of DeSaix Boulevard.
While the victim went about attaching the boat to his ute, a silver and black Mercedes Benz pulled up in front of him.
Footage released by the New Orleans Police Department shows one of the men stepping out of their car and quickly climbing into the truck.
The men are then seen driving away with the truck and leaving the victim standing on the street with just his boat.
Police have not yet identified any suspects in the robbery.
According to officials, the stolen truck was a silver 2017 Chevy Silverado and had a 9mm Taurus G2 pistol as well as a Ruger .22 revolver inside of it.
As of November 11, the New Orleans Police Department has reported 3591 vehicle burglaries and 6269 auto thefts.
The boat incident comes after another local fought off a carjacker using a pot of gumbo he was delivering to a neighbor.
