This is how it's done. https://youtu.be/j9LGkVO08TE

Two guys wanted to buy a phone but they were short of cash. They asked shopkeeper to hold the phone for them and gave him small deposit. They never came back.

The phone is stolen at around 03:10 right in front of shopkeeper and his assistant. At 06:05 you can see it once more from different camera angle.
