A customer at Sparkle Clean Car Wash in Broward County was shocked when a thief seized the opportunity to snatch her purse out of her car.

Just after 10:00 a.m. on May 14, a woman was vacuuming her car when she saw a black Volkswagen Passat back in next to her car. A man got out and started vacuuming his car.

The woman had her passenger door open and was looking at her phone. She put it back in her purse and went to clean her car, not realizing she left the passenger door open.

The thief is then seen on camera reaching into the car, grabbing her purse and driving off.

Broward County Sheriff's Office is now looking for the man responsible for the theft.
