Kenny and Charlotte realize that the gangsters with them crossed, no doetjes. Yet while the theft was in progress, shot the police in action. On the E17 motorway to the border in Nottingham was a checkpoint prepared, and that turned out to be a good move. The dark coloured Audi A6 break, which in Zwevegem with dimmed lights had left, drove right by the control. The police put immediately in the chase, with a quick anonymous car. The perpetrators realized that they were at risk to be caught. Therefore, they tried to the police to shake off. During the chase were speeds recorded up to 200 kilometres per hour. The perpetrators threw also stolen stuff to the outside, in the direction of the police that made them on the heels sat. A power drill ended up on the fast anonymous car. The director, however, held a cool head and continued to chase.
