The growing popularity of dashcams is catching all sorts of bad behavior on the road, and the devices can often help police find the perpetrator. Case in point: This alleged thief who was filmed pickpocketing on the move in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.

Obviously, it's morally wrong to steal; everyone knows that. However, this guy deserves a little credit for his riding ability and his brazenness. Who expects to get robbed while on a scooter – and by another rider, no less? The female victim definitely noticed the bandit next to her, but it was too late to stop his alleged crime.

Fortunately, the crook was better at stealing than evading the authorities. According to Visor Down, the pickpocket was caught later by police with help of the video evidence. Scroll down to watch this two-wheeled thief in action.

      It is pretty bad nowadays in VN, those kind of robbery happen so much. Also public transit. Those buses drive like crazy and kill so many people already... Just be careful when u decide to go there.

      Despite scumbags like this (and others), Ho Chi Minh is a fanastic city.

      Because of the crooked government. The economy there sucks. Cost of living has skyrocketed. People's income didn't go up at all. People resort to more crime, drugs, and prostitution. The cops are crooked as heck too. An acquaintence of mine over there just got in a wreck recently. He was out of conscious on the road with 7 broken ribs. People didn't help him, but instead robbed him. It was only when someone who knew him came along to help.
