In Lima, Peru "coyotes" lay in wait for traffic to stop. Once this happens the "coyotes" pounce on unsuspecting motorists. The thieves literally go into cars and steal whatever they can while cars are stopped due to traffic. And this happens during daytime hours. So far, these "coyotes" have stolen over $42,000 in cash from people. I mean, really dude, you have to be really cocky to pull this off.
