Watch this skilled pickpocket operating in broad daylight targeting a distracted traveler not paying attention to his surroundings.  This video shows the thief caught on CCTV stealing a mobile phone from a man’s jacket pocket.  The pickpocket fails the first time, but goes back again for another try.  Chinese police say the use of chopsticks means the pickpocket can carry out their crime without the risk of getting caught with their hand in someone’s pocket.
