The thugs take a swig at a guard before going back to hotwire a high-value car
Security guards continue to shout warning at the thieves until they drive away
The incident is believed to have happened yesterday at the Royal Mail Hub on Riversdale Road, in Atherstone, North Warwickshire
This is the shocking moment a gang of masked thieves armed with golf clubs attempt to steal a car in front of security guards.
Footage, captured yesterday at the Royal Mail Distribution Centre on Riversdale Road, in Atherstone, North Warwickshire, shows the thugs emerge from a dark blue Vauxhall and attempt to steal a lime green Ford Focus in the car park at 11.20am.
After failing to hotwire the parked car, the brazen thieves return to their getaway car and hastily drive away- all the while being filmed by members of staff in broad daylight.
During the clip, the masked thieves emerge from the getaway car and run towards a parked lime green Ford Focus in the car park before smashing the driver's window.
Two of the thieves poke their heads through the now smashed window in an attempt to flee with the high-value car.
The thugs continue in their pursuit to steal the green car but after multiple failed attempts rush back to their getaway car and flee the scene inside the dark blue Vauxhall.
As staff try to stop the brazen thieves, one of the thugs turns around baring a golf club and threateningly shouts: 'You know the best thing to do pal. Move.'
Owner of the green Ford Focus, Adam Feely, told the MailOnline that the thieves had smashed one of the windows of his car and damaged a door but were unable to start the car due to its anti-theft system.
He added: 'They stole the Vauxhall Zafira from a nearby golf course and changed the number plates.'
Footage of the vicious theft was shared on social media last night by Mr Feely's girlfriend, Syria Sylvia, under the caption: 'Anyone know them? Reward Waiting'.
The clip has now been viewed more than 500,000 times.
