In the video below, you can see the woman standing at the counter with her two daughters behind her. She is chatting to the shop assistant, asking about various deals that are available. Meanwhile, her young daughter – presumed to be around six years old – scans the store for an opportunity.

As soon as another shop assistant leaves his position behind the counter to assist a customer, the child takes the opportunity to sneak in behind the counter, and swipes two Samsung Galaxy S5’s. She quickly signals to her mother that she’s ready and they make a swift exit from the shop.
