Warning: Pickpockets in Pinner

Dear Watch Member,

We are currently investigating a series of recent pickpocket offences in Pinner. The most recent ones have occurred in Café Nero, Lidl, Marks & Spencer and WHSmith, where the victims have had their mobile phone and / or bankcards stolen from coat pockets, handbags or purses.

Although many of the pickpocket victims are elderly females, anyone can be targeted by thieves who often dress smartly to avoid being detected. Some thieves work alone; others with an accomplice.

Wherever you go it’s important you don’t make yourself an easy target by following this advice:

• Look out for people who get too close to you in a queue;
• Never leave your phone, wallet or purse in an open pocket;
• Never leave your handbag / rucksack unzipped and carry your bag in front, preferably diagonally across your body;
• Don’t leave your phone or other valuables unattended or out of sight, such as in a trolley;
• Don’t leave bags hanging on the backs of prams and chairs;
• Always cover the keypad when entering your PIN;
• Don’t become distracted when using an ATM; ensure that any money you withdraw is safely secured;
• Don’t keep your house keys with any document showing your address.

STOLEN – From the Peace Gardens, Pinner Memorial Park

It is hard to believe someone would be mean enough to steal a Salmon Pink Camellia from the Peace Garden in Pinner recently.
Sadly this is not the first time plants have been stolen, last June it was two Iceberg roses. The thefts coincide with Mothers’ Day and Fathers’ Day.
The gardens are for the enjoyment of the community.
Volunteers give up their time to keep the garden looking attractive, it’s very disappointing their hard work is not respected.
If you see anyone removing plants from this garden, please let them know they have been noticed, take a description, and report it to The Pinner Association. [email protected]
Thank you
