On the evening of April 17, security video from the McDonald's at 326 Indian Trace in Weston captured the moments when an unidentified man discovered an iPhone on one of the restaurant's benches. Just steps away, a mom with three young kids was frantically looking for her iPhone, which one of her kids had placed on the bench and forgotten.

During her search, the victim asked the thief if he had seen the phone. He ignored her question and can be seen on video hiding the phone in his pocket.

The thief was at the restaurant with a young child. He is described as an adult male with a light complexion, a thin build, short black hair and prescription glasses. He wore a pink T-shirt, black pants and black sneakers.

Anyone with information is asked to contact BSO Detective K. Toro at 954-626-4009. Reports can also be made anonymously to Broward Crime Stoppers at 954-493-TIPS (8477) or online at browardcrimestoppers.org.

MEDIA NOTE: Surveillance video is available on our website, www.sheriff.org.
