A CCTV camera has exposed the tactics an elderly man used to steal a mobile phone from a pharmacy he was intentionally purchasing from.
The man, who had entered under the pretext of purchasing some tablets he showed, used the trick to steal a black mobile phone right in front of the pharmacist.
In the video below, the man dressed in a thobe headed towards the empty counter, scouted the pharmacy and did his trick by placing his tablet on the table and dragged one of the phones lying at the counter, before walking away.
He returned to the dispensary and engaged in a brief conversation with the unsuspecting pharmacist.
