In the beginning of the released video, Williams is seen discreetly rummaging through a pocket of a passenger’s backpack and calmly pocketing what he stole as he stepped away to assist others going through the checkpoint.
A short time later, Gonzalez is also seen sneakily picking through a backpack and eventually places what he stole – presumably money – into his pants pocket.
