Shocking video shows three burglars taking just 18 seconds to kick their way into a home in broad daylight on a busy street.
The brazen crooks are believed to have struck in Batley, West Yorkshire, last Thursday.
The footage appears to have been taken from CCTV attached to the property but the identity of the victims is presently unknown.
The CCTV shows the men approach the house in what appears to be a Volkswagen Golf as they reverse on to the drive.
The man who emerged from the back seat, wearing a baseball cap and black gloves, tries the door to find it is locked
Then he takes a two yard run-up and kicks the glass door with full force attempting to break it open
Once the getaway car comes to a stop all three men bundle out of the car leaving the doors open, each of them wearing gloves.
Two of the gang are wearing baseball caps, and one even appears to be wearing slippers.
From opening the getaway car doors to getting in to the property takes 18 seconds.
Looks like they knew which house to do obviously knew no one was home even with the car outside.
What’s so scary is that it only took two quick kicks to break the lock get in the house!
Jhabran Kahn posted: ‘That’s pretty clear, zoom in and send off to the police. Also the registration is visible. I’m surprised nobody saw this, considering it happened on a main road that during the day light!’
Robert Ian Hardy added: ‘Looks like they knew which house to do obviously knew no one was home even with the car outside.’

Marion Walker said: ‘What’s so scary is that it only took two quick kicks to break the lock get in the house!’
Robert Ian Hardy added: ‘People doing this when caught should be given a 10 year sentence for the financial and heartbreak they cause people. If they ever did mine while I was in they’d know about cowards.’
West Yorkshire Police have been approached for comment.
