Valsayn car thief shuts down, abandons vehicle

The thief entered as the gate was closing.

A Valsayn resident was robbed of his vehicle at gunpoint at around 4 p.m. on Thursday.

The thief was undeterred by the electric gate and the several CCTV cameras on the property. 

Surveillance footage showed the resident driving into his Valsayn home and just before the electronic gate closed behind him, the criminal darted into the premises and pointed a gun to the man who was about to exit his vehicle. 

The Express understands that the suspect abandoned the vehicle after its automatic shut off system was enabled. 

The Valsayn community has been experiencing a spate of crimes as criminals have been targetting the upscale residential area.
