There is the popular saying about ninety-nine days for the thief and one day for the owner. Well, it certainly was the wrong for the young man who was caught on camera stealing a phone.
The incident which occurred at a mini mart in Mobil filling station located at the Oniru area of Lagos, shows the young man at the cash desk in what looks like he was waiting for his change.
Then he goes behind the cash desk, leans over and pretends to be checking out the loaf of bread there and then in the process, carries the phone while managing to distract the attendant at the counter.
He further goes ahead to purchase another loaf of bread and walks out of the shop leaving the attendants and other customers unaware of what had happened.
Although it was great a relief for the CCTV camera to have recorded the despicable act, it is yet to be confirmed if the thief was eventually arrested.
Well, this is a lesson to all that it is important to have security cameras installed at places of business, it is also imperative for a security personnel to also monitor these cameras in case of situations like this.
