MiDC recently got this in an e-mail. We thought it was important to share:
Subject: Police warning- please pass along
Police are urging visitors to their local mall to be especially vigilant for a new gang operating a slick routine that is aimed at stealing from unwary persons.
They say that the gang usually comprises four members. While the three younger ones, all appearing to be cute and innocent, divert their "mark" (the intended victim) with a show of friendliness and fun, the fourth - the eldest of this gang of criminals - sneaks in from behind the person's back to expertly rifle undetected through their pockets and bags for any valuables being carried.
The picture below, taken from CCTV operating in the inner city, shows the gang in operation.
