Beware of Pickpockets and Thefts in Supermarkets


Dear Watch Member,

Please be aware that pickpockets and opportunist thieves are operating in local supermarkets.

Victims have reported having their handbag or its contents stolen from an unattended shopping trolley. In some cases a wallet / purse or mobile phone has been taken from the outer pocket of a coat, handbag or backpack.

  • Please be aware of who is around you;
  • Never leave your handbag unattended, even for a moment;
  • Never carry large quantities of cash;
  • Keep house keys and anything with your address on separate from each other.
