This CCTV footage from Durban reportedly shows two would-be thieves quietly getting into a Ford Ranger, before the bakkie's driver returns to chase them off.

The clip shows the white Ranger parked along what appears to be rather a quiet road. Two men then walk up and climb into the cabin, after presumably using some sort of remote jamming device to prevent the driver from locking the bakkie.

About 15 seconds later, the driver opens the gate, notices movement in his vehicle and opens the bakkie's door. After a brief stand-off with one of the would-be thieves, the latter makes a run for it, while his accomplice also appears to sneak away.
