Sentry Mode’s Onboard Cameras Catch Vandal Keying A Tesla Model 3

Tesla’s Sentry mode has proved its usefulness once again, capturing the moment a young man keyed a blue Model 3 for no apparent reason.

The following incident happened in Dorschester, Massachusetts last Thursday. Initially, it shows a man wearing black clothes entering a Target store at 9:16 a.m. that morning. Fast forward to 10:34 a.m. and the man can be seen walking towards the Tesla with headphones in and pulling a set of keys out of his pocket.

Very subtlety, he sticks out his arm as he walks down the side of the Tesla, keying it from just in front of the front door all the way to the middle of the rear door. As he walks away, he looks back at his handiwork, perhaps admiring his “handiwork”.

In the months since Tesla introduced the Sentry model for the Model 3, the system which uses the car’s various cameras has captured numerous incidents of people vandalizing cars or breaking into them. It has become so common that we would have thought would-be criminals would know by now that, if they approach a Tesla suspiciously, they can be assured that the car will record whatever they’re doing. Evidently, criminals like these aren’t the sharpest tools in the shed – or, probably, know nothing about the latest car tech.

John Ho, the owner of this particular Model 3, filed a police report shortly after the incident and provided authorities with the video as evidence.
