Bells for bags – the winter thieves are back

There has been the usual raft of complaints about pickpockets who seem to descend on Tenerife each autumn in readiness to target the more elderly visitors we get over the winter months. Over the last week or so, reports of bag and purse thefts in Mercadona stores, including the new one in CC Parque Santiago 6 in El Camisón, have abounded.

Now, the South Tenerife British Lions have produced anti theft bells which apparently have a very firm fan base! They are being sold for €1 in their shops in the Apolo Centre, Los Cristianos, and Las Gaviotas, Costa del Silencio. Bells or not, take extra care right now with personal belongings: this is an annual occurrence and the thieving misery-makers are back in force.
