In the video posted on Facebook last Thursday, the man is seen standing inside the store before approaching the counter. He then snatches the phone and casually walks out.

The owners of the phone told the Bedfordview Edenvale News they were in the process of registering a case with the police.

In a separate incident, CCTV footage emerged showing two bogus customers stealing a staff member’s cellphone from underneath a counter at a spares shop in Krugersdorp, on the West Rand, last year.

The footage shows two suspects, one in a blue shirt and the other in a white button shirt, carefully peeking over the counter a number of times while another salesperson is busy with a customer.

The suspects are then seen switching places moments before the suspect with the blue shirt leans over and snatches a cellphone from behind the counter.
