Purse thefts warning!

There have been a number of purse thefts in Ely and Huntingdon over the last few days. The victims have been targeted in charity shops and card shops.   Please do be vigilant and be aware of anyone standing too close to you.  These offenders, who are working in groups, are very professional at what they do.  Don’t give them the opportunity to steal your purse.  There are simple precautions you can take:
• Be aware of people around you when out and about
• Carry your bag close to you with the opening facing inwards
• Keep your bag closed so that your purse cannot be seen
• Don’t carry valuables or large sums of money. Spring clean your bag regularly
• Never leave your bag unattended, particularly in shopping trolleys
• Spread your possessions about – carry your keys in your pocket. Never carry PIN numbers with any cards
• Don’t place your wallet in a back trouser pocket
