A fake priest was filmed breaking one of the 10 commandments by using a Bible to cover up a tourist's cellphone at a Mexican beach resort before stealing it.
The elderly suspect can be seen in the shocking video footage approaching the restaurant table in the resort town of Playa Del Carmen, then engaging the woman and her son in a conversation.
He placed his Bible on top of the woman’s cellphone and subsequently picked up the holy book while holding on to the mobile device all at once.
That accomplice quickly lifted the device and walked out the eatery.
The son eventually approached a restaurant manager to complain that his mother’s phone was missing.
The fake priest, knowing he was not going to get caught with the phone, complied when the manager asked if he could check his bag.
After revising his belongings, the manager cleared him and allowed him to leave.
