It is a common place to be and certainly one that we visit often. Yes, you probably guessed it, its the gas station. The gas station is probably one of the most visited places nowadays due to the fact that if you do happen to own a vehicle of any kind, unless is 100% electric, you need to fill up on gas to get to where ever you need to go. However, things have happen to take a turn for the worse aside of all the security cameras and once again thieves have found a way to go about their "business" at gas stations as well.
Here we have a video which shows an example of this kind of theft first hand and from a very clear view of a gas station camera . This lady happens to casually drive in right beside the gas station and get out of the car and stick the gas hose down her tank and punch in the number so she can purchase her gas. While she is doing her routine, you can very clearly see another car drive right up next to hers and park just close enough so that the guy can perform his act of getting out, remaining below eye sight view and open the drivers door and quickly snatch the purse. He immediately closes the door gently and gets into his own car and drives away very "normally".
