A Point Cook resident has been left devastated after the theft of his BMW last week.

Joe Perkovic said the black BMW X5 was stolen from the driveway of his Capodanno Street home on Thursday, October 7 at 4.05am.

Mr Perkovic said he had spent 10 years saving up to buy his “dream car” but the actions of the thief have caused his efforts to be “gone in five seconds”.

CCTV captured by Mr Perkovic’s neighbours shows a white Mercedes Sprinter van dating from 2009 to 2011, with a back door window tinted in white, dropping the alleged thief off in the street.

After exiting the van, the man broke into another vehicle owned by Mr Perkovic, to steal the BMW’s key and paperwork.

The black BMW was in process of being registered, so it did not have plates at the time it was stolen.

The neighbour’s security video also captured footage of a man, believed to be the thief, smoking outside at the time of the theft.

The man was wearing a cap and his face cannot be seen clearly in the footage.

The theft has been reported to police.
