Be Careful With Your Handbags
Well, as Christmas approaches the thieves are becoming more inventive. It seems we have a group of women that are going around switching w omen's handbags and replacing it with one with a stone in it.
"They walk with their bag which has a big stone covered with pretty paper and stand beside someone who also has a bag and switch the bags ... so they leave with goods and the other person is left with a big stone," Special Inspector Joseph Donaldson of the Darling Street police told The Star.
It appears when you are shopping and you rest your bag that the thief will come alongside of you and pick up your bag and leave one with a stone in it. The police are urging shoppers to be extra careful, when going about their business.
