São Paulo, Brazil has seen an incredible rise in smartphone theft. But this isn't the result of mere pickpocketing, these crimes are much more brazen. Several incidents have been caught on video of suspects running up to cars stuck in traffic jams and stealing smartphones right out of people's hands! Brazilian authorities estimate that 250 phones are stolen daily. In 2021, police said over 77,000 phones were stolen.

Meanwhile, over in the Czech Republic, a group of masked men broke into a gas station. Nightvision security cameras recorded the masked crooks wandering around the station for about an hour before they began their break-in. All in all, the criminals stole over $1,800 worth of cigarettes. While the crooks got away for now, during their robbery one of the men cut themselves and left DNA behind at the crime scene.
