Spanish broadcaster TVE was doing an interview on the beach in Barcelona when a man in the background fled with someone else’s backpack. The images went viral in Spain, enabling police to track down and arrest the thief.
The theft was filmed Saturday afternoon. On the beach of Sant Miquel, a visitor was interviewed who talks extensively about the beach, the weather and the delicious food in Barcelona. To the left of the man you can see how someone puts down a backpack and walks away for a while, after which a thief took off with the backpack a few seconds later. The owner asks for help, while the interview quietly continues.
