Tricky thieves were caught on camera stealing a bag from a lady at a restaurant, whilst her friend was still at the table!

When one of the women gets up to go to the toilet, the friend has no idea that the bag she is supposed to be watching is being stolen from right under her nose.
The confident criminals sit on a table nearby and wait for the perfect opportunity to steal the unattended bag.
The man hands the female thief an extendable grabber and she uses it to pull the bag closer whilst her accomplish pretends to be on the phone.
