Keep a grip on your handbag

The States of Jersey Police are warning revellers to keep an eye on their handbags after a series of thefts in recent weeks.

It seems thieves are operating in bars around St Helier, possibly distracting the victim and then taking items such a mobile phones or purses from handbags.

In the last month there have been seven reported thefts from one particular bar, but officers believe the perpetrators will be at work in other nightspots as well.

The advice to people is to be vigilant, know where your property is and keep it with you at all times.

Officers also advise that people mark their property as it gives people the best chance of getting it back if they are targeted by thieves.
