Distraction Theft

There are a number of reports in the local press about "distraction theft" taking place in a number of ways - you can be approached in a super market, walking along a street or by a passing car where your attention is gained to allow you to be robbed by a third party.  It is very important that you keep your valuables out of sight and in a place of safety and be aware that this type of theft is apparently on the increase.
