Watch Out ...Thief About!
Crime prevention advice for Christmas shoppers
Thieves will steal valuables in seconds while shoppers are looking at displays or trying on clothes. Coffee shops and pubs are another place thieves like as customers leave bags on the floor or leave phones unattended while they go up to the counter to collect their drink.
Sergeant James Rawlinson from Ealing Broadway SNT said "Crowds of shoppers can attract thieves but the good news is that it is easy to keep your valuables safe:
* Always keep valuables with you and within sight. Don't turn you back on an unattended bag, phone or laptop.
We want everybody to enjoy their shopping and nights out in Ealing and these simple steps will make sure the only people who won't enjoy Christmas are the thieves".
