De Telegraaf released surveillance camera footage of a van crashing into the newspaper's building on Basisweg in Amsterdam around 4:00 a.m. on Tuesday morning.

The video shows a white Volkswagen Caddy carefully driving between concrete flower boxes and crashing into the door. The van reverses, and crashes into the building again. A man gets out, open the van's back doors and throws something into the van, which causes the van to catch fire, before running off.

In the background of the video, the man can be seen getting into a waiting car which then drives away. The police believe the getaway car is a dark colored Audi.
