As Tomer Akerman pumped gas at a Lauderhill gas station, someone managed to open the front passenger door and snatch a bag containing $30,000 worth of cash and jewelry, police said.
On Monday, police released the video in hopes of identifying the thief.
The incident happened at about 4:30 p.m. Aug. 15 at the Chevron Gas Station in the 7100 block of North University Drive.
The video showed Akerman looking away from his car as another car stops close by and a man jumps out. The man appeared to crouch down, as he opened the door to the black Ford Explorer.
