Watch A Dodge Hellcat Get Stolen In 8 Minutes

In all honesty, these guys are slower than most ...
You've probably heard that Dodge muscle car thefts are rampant, something Stellantis has denied but also concerns with the never-ending security update. To provide a recent example, we recorded a surveillance video from Chicago in which two guys who appear to be fairly inexperienced and inexperienced break into a Dodge Challenger Hellcat and drive it away in 8 minutes.

The video was shot in a parking lot in Chicago, a place where recently crimes like car theft have gotten out of control. At the beginning of the footage, a white Jeep Grand Cherokee drives into the parking lot and drives back to the spot next to the Hellcat. Interestingly, another person in an orange Dodge Challenger drives into the parking lot behind them and then drives back almost directly across from them.
We suspect the second car is some kind of lookout. The two guys in the jeep also share their roles, one acts as a lookout while the other works to strengthen the Hellcat. The orange Challenger's headlights stay on all the time.
During the tedious process of getting into the mopar and starting the engine, someone drives into the parking lot in an Audi crossover and drives backwards into a place. The lookout pretends to do something around the jeep while his buddy is in the Hellcat, probably programming a new key. The ruse seems to work, although at some point the lookout gets out of the Grand Cherokee and promptly jumps back in, apparently frightened by something.
What is really interesting is that while the Hellcat comes to life, not only is the Jeep driving away, but the Audi as well, which clearly suggests it wasn't a random guy, but another lookout. It is likely that all three vehicles used in this theft are stolen, which shows you how organized these car theft rings are. Someone is teaching and organizing these people, something we hope the police in Chicago and elsewhere are working to find out.
This whole raid was recorded around 5:00 a.m. on August 25th. While most car thefts happen at night, we've seen them in broad daylight too. With the penalties in court for these criminals on the light side, they've gotten much bolder lately. Add to this the rising values of used cars, especially Mopar muscle cars like Hellcats, and it's easy to see why these crimes are becoming so common.
Furthermore, like Mopars, these guys are undeniable. After all, they show up in two of them to steal a third. The Challenger Hellcat is worth a considerable sum, but if it was all about money, these guys would have tried to get hold of the Porsche 911 Cabriolet that was also in the parking lot. Why didn't they do it? It's worth far more than the Hellcat, but it's also considerably more difficult to steal. But don't worry, Dodge will eventually roll out its theft protection that may or may not work while countless more mopars are stolen by hardworking people.
