Southern California police on Tuesday arrested two suspects in connection with vehicular burglaries who were found in a car straight out of a “James Bond” movie, they said.

Yasmine Kambour, 37, and Chris Huynh, 44, both residents of Garden Grove in Orange County, were arrested after someone called the Irvine Police Department to report seeing them in a car park.

The tipster said he recognized the suspects and their 2008 Mercedes Benz C300, which may have been involved in a series of vehicle break-ins, Fox Los Angeles reported.

What officers found was something out of a modern spy movie.

“The suspect vehicle was something out of @007 film,” the department wrote in a Facebook post.

Officers discovered a device that tilts the rear license plate with the push of a button, authorities said. Additionally, they reportedly found an “elaborate gas siphoning device” that transfers fuel directly into their gas tank.

Inside the car, officers found break-in tools, stolen property and evidence of impersonation, the police department said. Detectives also recovered a previously stolen vehicle.

Kambour and Huynh were arrested on suspicion of vehicle burglary, vehicle theft, identity theft, possession of stolen property and possession of burglary tools.

Kambour is being held in the Orange County Jail on $95,000 bond. Huynh was released Thursday, according to prison records.
