After inspecting the CCTV footage it was discovered that Giovanni had taken the girl's phone off the table, placed it in his fanny pack and then walked to the toilets where he turned it off. The staff confronted Giovanni about the theft and showed him CCTV footage where it was proven without a doubt that he was the guilty phone thief.
Giovanni returned the phone and was asked to pay his bill and leave. Later in the evening Giovanni posted a warning on Facebook claiming that the bar staff was trying to scam him, and that they had put their phone in his bag in order to extort him for money. He claimed that he had to pay to avoid problems with the police.
The Italian phone thief blamed the wrong bar, thinking that he had been in Xanadu bar when he had in fact been in another bar a couple of doors down the street. The owners of the bar responded to the allegations by publishing the CCTV footage showing GIOVANNI MILITELLO attempting to steal the phone.
Giovanni Militello has deleted his Facebook account and could not be reached for a comment about his phone thieving behavior.
In Giovanni's own words:
