Police say Reko Levels stole a cell phone from a gas station clerk in October 2013.

Prosecutors told jurors after Levels allegedly stole the phone he told a cab driver, "If (the clerk) didn't want it stolen, she shouldn't have left it on the counter."

Prosecutors presented more than an hour worth of surveillance footage from the gas station to the jurors.

The defense told jurors things would be moving quickly.

Levels faces 7.5 years.
