Stolen £100,000 Range Rover intercepted en route to Africa

A £100,000 Range Rover belonging to Anthony and Danielle Wilson of Essex, near Bishop’s Stortford, the United Kingdom, was stolen and tracked to Tilbury port en route to the Democratic Republic of Congo.

The couple’s posh car vanished in the garage before they awoke on a fateful morning in July 2022, but it was discovered loaded on a container at a UK port.

According to the BBC, thieves stole The Wilsons’ Range Rover Sport from their gated home in 63 seconds.

The theft was caught on the family’s CCTV system and it showed two people involved – one stealing the car and another driving the vehicle they arrived in.

“You can see one of them creeping up the drive,” said Mrs Wilson.

“He’s literally leaning into my car, doing something, switched the interior light off, and then trundled it down the drive.”

The couple thought they might have been followed by the thieves for some time before the car was taken.

“Police had said there was a chance that I’d been followed because they’d obviously got in it without the keys, so maybe they cloned the key or found a way to get into it when I’d been out and about, and I only ever go anywhere with my little toddler so it worried me then.

“I just found it really scary and the more I thought about it, the worse it got.”

The husband, in his own reaction, said, “When you watch the CCTV, it’s almost incredible that somebody walks up to the car, and 63 seconds later is driving an expensive car down the driveway having never seen the keys in their life.”

The report disclosed that the car’s tracking system alerted police when it got out of range of the keys, which were still with the Wilsons.

Officers arrived at the Wilsons’ home to investigate shortly after the car was found missing from the driveway.

About a month after the car was stolen in July, it was discovered wedged inside a container at the Port of Tilbury, in Essex.
