Uvall is on his way to the office. To top it off, a free parking spot right in front of new york panini in huntington, long island. Today everything just seems to be going his way. What's the worst that could happen? That is, until we see who's lurking around the corner. Today kevin is playing a thief with his eyes on the prize or prizes in all's beautiful, sparkling and unattended open car. And it's not just any car. This one is filled with more than $10,000 worth of uvall's possessions left right out in the open. If you saw this thief checking out and shaking down a car in broad daylight, what would you do? I know. Look, I just got -- I took off work a little early. Don't make me go back to work on the weekend. Hello. Oh. Hey, do you have the time? 6:00. 6:00. Nice folks they give him the time.

No, I thought it was his stuff. Until the other guy came. We're at it again. T too good a thief. Once again for our thief it's all too easy.

You psasaw him? Yeah, I didn't know he was stealing it. Then she offers an old-fashioned eyewitness. He had a beard, he was wearing khaki shorts and I think a hat. Khaki shorts. Too bad she's way off. I saw the guy take the stuff. I just didn't think anything of it. Another getaway and now kevin is about to break every rule in the thief's handbook. Excuse me. Is this your car? That's all you got. I guess? Oh, sweet. Oh. Have a good one. We're beginning to think kevin is one amazing thief until from out of nowhere -- they took everything. I saw the guy. I called the police. You called the police? He has a receding hairline. He's white. White with a receding hairline. About 5'11" with a receding hairline, probably about 40 years old.
