Thieves Tagging Potential Victims

We have heard recently of an unpleasant situation at markets in the upper Calder Valley. Thieves have been tagging vulnerable “targets” with yellow pegs which they attach to clothing or bags as a signal to accomplices that the individual is a suitable target for robbery.

If this happens to you, don’t hesitate to let the local Police know about it.

And, it’s a great reminder that we can all be vulnerable to thieves when distracted during shopping. Always keep you purse in a zipped pocket, if possible.


Many Thanks
