TV host Steve Harvey is not prepared when he meets Bob Arno on the Little Big Shots: Forever Young episode “Young at Heart.” Arno is the Swedish-born entertaining pickpocket king who can slip anything off of you — even Harvey’s necktie — without you noticing.

Arno is the subject of the 2011 National Geographic documentary film Pickpocket King (see video below) which was shot in Naples, Italy in 2010. The cameras followed Arno (and his wife Bambi Vincent) as he infiltrated the city’s “most prolific pickpocket gang” who eventually challenge Arno to steal in the real world. See video below. Little Big Shots: Forever Young airs Wednesdays at 8pm on NBC.
