Police warning follows spate of phone thefts
Saturday 26th October 2013, 10:32AM BST.
CLUBBERS and pubgoers are being targeted by mobile phone thieves, police have warned.
Crime reduction officer Andy Goodall has called for mobile owners to be more responsible about their property following a number of smartphone thefts from various establishments at night.
He said people had become too complacent about their mobiles and had been making it easy for opportunist thieves.
His warning followed a Magistrate’s Court hearing where a 44-year-old man was found guilty of the thefts of seven expensive mobiles – all of which happened at either Les Folies d’Amour Nightclub or The Townhouse between 18 December and 3 April.
