Shocking footage has been posted online of the moment a taxi driver grabbed her friend’s iPhone off the car seat and pocketed it.
The girls are getting out of a car before one of them sticks their head back into the cab to say goodbye to the driver and he smiles and waves to them.
However, because they’d had a few drinks the two girls didn’t spot the taxi driver snatch the phone and conceal it from view. It wasn’t until they watched the Snapchat footage later (when they were sober we assume) that they realised what had happened.
So sneaky! The car was allegedly registered to Canadian taxi Firm ‘Beck Cars’, and we can’t help but be astounded at how un-canadian the crime is.
The poster wrote on YouTube:
On Saturday night I took a cab home with a friend. As she is exiting the cab I click onto my app Snapchat and filmed her exit thinking it was funny…little to know I recorded him stealing her cell phone as her back was turned to him as she was getting out of the car. Watch the beginning of the film and see how he doesn’t think twice and finally waves to the camera.
She says that the police were called and the thieving taxi driver was charged, and the phone returned. Let this be a lesson to us all –
always check for your stuff before you get out the taxi! Snapchat everything.
