it appears they fooled the local news too if so:

CAUGHT ON CAMERA: Driver robbed while in San Francisco traffic

SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- A driver captured video of a brazen robbery while driving through traffic in San Francisco on Friday afternoon.

The driver, Alex, says he was about to get on an onramp, heading east on I-80 around 4:30 p.m. There, he witnessed someone jump out of a Honda Accord and smash a window of a Prius in front of him.

The thief grabbed a bag and drove off.

ABC7's Dion Lim spoke to the victims of the robbery, a husband and wife, who are from Iran.

Ben says he and his wife, Masha, are real estate photographers and were on a shoot near Dolores Park.

Ben, who was in the passenger seat of the Prius, says his wife noticed someone following them after the shoot.

The couple says about $7,000 worth of camera equipment was stolen. They said they have not seen anything like this before and have filed a police report.

The thieves just happened to know right where the bag was, and that the bag contained valuables? They hatched their plan to pop the glass in just minutes after allegedly seeing the bag placed in the back of the Prius? Happened to have the pop tool handy? First thing the victims do is look right at the camera they know is filming? I'm suspicious for insurance fraud here. Expect a TV reporter to be at all skeptical? I bet the cops are.

What Dooms said. The guy breaks the glass knowing there was something valuable in the bag and gets in his car and takes off. These dolts step outside their car and look around everywhere, except at the car speeding away. Completely staged.

It's a scam. What did they lose? What was of so much value in the bag that they have to post a go fund me?

And these guys are supposed to be professional thieves so they go to break into the car surrounded by eyewitnesses in stopped traffic. Also notice the passenger's delay in getting out of the vehicle. His door is open but he doesn't step out until the car is on the move.

Wouldn't be the first time.

When the plates come back stolen and the cops start looking further into this there'll be some arrests lol. Got a feeler this ain't the end of the story.

still on the fence, this was in San Francisco where crazy shit seems to be happening on the regular these days
I'm not hunnert percent discounting that it coulda been the real McCoy. Maybe the perps are smash and grabbers and case their vics and wait for the opportunity. And keep the pop tool handy. Maybe the cops have several such cases with similar MO and descriptions of the perps.

But the video by itself sure as hell leaves doubt, to the trained eye.
