German Dative Question

In one of my German course books, there are the following sentences: 
"Er nimmt sein Geld und steckt es in die Brieftasche. Er steckt die Brieftasche in seine Rocktasche."

But since "in" is a preposition that begins a Dative phrase, shouldn't the sentences be:
"Er nimmt sein Geld und steckt es in der Brieftasche. Er steckt die Brieftasche in seiner Rocktasche."?
