In the video, a young man in a basketball jersey can be seen knocking on the front door of the family home belonging to Rakesh and Monica Raizada.

The man waited patiently but when no one answered he disappeared, only to return five minutes later with his two accomplices.

“It is a very professional job. I think they are used to doing such things,” Mr Rakesh told 7 News.

Despite being armed with screwdrivers, they decided to break down the front door with a running jump kick instead.

In and out within five minutes, the trio ransacked drawers, stealing gold jewellery and other items before finding their grand prize – keys to an Audi parked in the driveway.

“We never thought somebody can do it so easily,” the shattered car owner said.

“I'm so heartbroken that they took away my beauty.”

His wife was just as shattered that her beloved possessions were taken and likely sold for petty cash.

“For those people they might have got peanut values for those things, but of course for us, we have lost very dear memories,” she added.

“I couldn't sleep at night. One is feeling insecure because someone has touched all your personal belongings.”

As they leave the Weribee home, some flee in a white four wheel drive, others spot a security camera and push it away, only to reposition it at an angle that films their brazen car theft.

When it happened on Thursday afternoon, two neighbours were watching but neither saw the men bash in the front door. They only noticed something was wrong when the gang sped away in the Audi.

“I just through they were just like relatives or something, going to use the pool across the road,’ the neighbour said.
