Life moves pretty fast, especially when you’re the victim of a sudden snatching. Detectives are releasing a video of a young thief who stole a cellphone right out of the hands of his victim the evening of January 14 while they rode bus #0824 in Unincorporated Broward. 

The video shows a young male, possibly a teenager, with dark facial hair wearing glasses, an olive green hoodie, light-colored pants and a black backpack, seated near the rear of the bus. As the bus reached the suspect’s stop, he rose and stood next to the rear doors. The victim was sitting by the rear doors, holding his phone in front of him with his headphones attached.  

As soon as the back door opened, he suddenly reached out, grabbed the phone and ran. The victim attempted to follow the thief but was unable to recover his property. 
Anyone with information can contact BSO Det. Armando Enrique at 954-321-4233. If you wish to remain anonymous, contact Broward Crime Stoppers at 954-493-TIPS (8477) or online at Anonymous tips that lead to an arrest are eligible for a reward of up to $3,000.
