No honour among thieves as armed robber gets taste of own medicine in South Africa

An armed thief in South Africa has been caught on security footage getting a taste of his own medicine.

At first, the video shows the robbery seemingly going to plan as the armed thief starts to steal cash out of the register.

But with frantic hands, he drops some of the money to the ground and the second thief can be seen crawling into action.

Swiftly sliding in, he grabs the money the first thief has dropped on the ground without being noticed, or shot, and slithers away.
