Beckenham Police advise of rise of thefts on High Street

Recently in Caffe Nero and Costa Coffee in Beckenham High Street we have seen a rise in thefts from/of bags and mobile phones.

Bags are being left on the back of chairs some open some not and then they are dipped or in some cases stolen.

Mobile phones are being left on the table and the suspects are coming in handing out leaflets and either putting them on top off or next to mobile phones, once the conversation is finished the suspect then picks up the leaflet along with the phone. People are distracted by the conversation and then don’t realise until a little later that there phone has been taken.

We advise that everyone keeps there bag and phone in sight at all times or on there person.
