Sometimes our small acts and deeds can do wonders. Sometimes the acts which we do not consider important turn out to be of great significance. It is not only the big deeds and major acts that can make a difference; sometimes small gestures are more strong and meaningful.

A citizen has assisted the authorities to capture the robbers who robbed McDonald’s through his small yet important contribution. A branch of McDonald’s in Riyadh was robbed by a man. He could fly away successfully as he was assisted by his crime partner.

A 39-seconds-long video clip

The Riyadh authorities were only able to catch the robbers after a video on social media got posted and went viral. A citizen had filmed the scene where the robber was fleeing away. In the 39-second-long video, it has been seen that the robber rushes towards a car which was already waiting for his arrival.

The robber had successfully fled from the crime scene, but he never knew that he was being filmed and would be caught soon. The authorities got alerted after the video went trending in social media. Thus, the security patrols were set in Riyadh.
