Thief Stealing an Old Man's Wallet Gets Caught on Camera and Now the Internet's Hunting Him

By

A man who stole money from a 95-year-old Grandpa who was getting ready to pay for something at a grocery store just learned the hard way that the internet doesn't take kindly to people who rob the elderly.

When it comes to dealing out justice, a Twitter mob hyped up on righteous indignation is a powerful tool. Just ask these young fools who stole a tip jar, then bragged about it on Snapchat.

An irate member of the victim's family posted security camera footage online and asked Twitter to do its thing. In a matter of hours, the identities of the girls who carried out the crime were discovered, as were incriminating videos of them bragging about the crime on Snapchat.

With the case of this 95-year-old man, however, Twitter had even less information to go on.

In the following video — which will make your blood boil if you watch it, unless you have a thing against old people — we see an elderly man leaving his wallet out on a countertop as some shady looking dude hovers over him. Once the thief sees his chance, he quickly grabs the wallet and some cash and high tails it out of there.

The look on the man's face after he realizes what just happened is heartbreaking.
