The thief’s facial expressions as he noticed the camera in the video are remarkable, according to a few comments. In a smooth display of expertise as he slides the man's wallet out of his pocket, he declares victory. However, the next moment when the camera catches his attention, he puts his hands up. In a funny reaction as one would seeing a cop, the thief quietly paces a couple of steps backward and inserts the wallet right back in the man’s back pocket. All this while, the guy screening the shelves for supplies does not know what happened.
