An unidentified man was caught on CCTV stealing cellphone from not one but two stores, in just one day. The first was one was in a store in BF Homes, Parañaque and the other one is in a spa, also in the same area. Watch his actions very closely on the 2 videos below, so you will see how his modus operandi works with almost no effort at all.
On the first video as uploaded at Pilipino Star Ngayon Facebook page on Thursday, May 3, a CCTV video shows a man wearing a stripe shirt and a blue jacket is talking to a woman working inside a store. The video has no audio, but he can be seen showing some documents to her. The woman later put a stamp in one of them and signed on it.
Shortly, the thief stretched his right arm and stole the cellphone of the woman, who was busy stamping and signing another document. But while doing so, he can be seen laughing while apparently talking to the woman’s companion at the other table. As you can see, he used one of the documents to cover his hand while stealing the cellphone.
Some netizens thought the cellphone that was stolen was at the right side of the woman. But by watching the 46-second video closely, it is clear that the woman’s companion took it, probably because it was near the suspect. The stealing of the cellphone is at 0.09 mark of the video, and the suspect appears to be a professional thief.
On the second video also uploaded at Pilipino Star Ngayon Facebook page around 3 hours later, a CCTV video of a spa also in BF Homes, Parañaque, the same man can also be seen wearing the same clothes, bringing some documents, but this time wearing his eyeglasses. The video was taken on Wednesday, May 2 at around 4 pm.
Just like in the first video, the woman was busy with his documents and the suspect is also talking. And although the stealing of cellphone was not clearly seen, you can see that he covered his right arm using a paper on his left hand, as he stretched it to reach for something on the table. You can also clearly see that he has a tattoo on his neck.
