Original article:

A man was caught on camera taking money from a driver's bag while seated in the backseat of a car.

A Stomper alerted Stomp to the video that has been circulating online.

According to the video's time stamp, the incident happened on Jul 23 at 5.28am.

The incident apparently happened in Singapore, although this cannot be confirmed. 

In the video, the man is in the middle seat behind the driver.

While the driver is concentrating on the road, he leans forward and grabs something that looks like a bag.

When he finally manages to grab the bag, the man then sifts through the contents before taking out several money notes.

He then takes the notes and puts them into his pocket before placing the bag back in its original position.

When the driver arrives at the passenger's destination, the passenger pays him and leaves.

A screenshot of a WhatsApp conversation between a man who is believed to be the driver and another person has also circulated online along with the video.

The driver tells his friend in Malay that he had picked up the passenger at Ang Mo Kio and dropped him off at Jalan Kayu.

He added that the man had taken $500 in cash from the hard-earned money he had made over three days.

From the conversation, it also appears that he is a Grab driver as he tells his friend that once he drops off a passenger, he loses their contact information.
