Pickpockets puncture tyres to empty wallets

Police warn of new scam

Beware if your car has a flat tyre when you come out of the supermarket. North Zealand Police has issued a warning about a new ploy being used by pickpockets.

The ruse is a two-man job – one follows the victim from their car and into the supermarket and watches them key in the PIN code to their credit card at the checkout, while the other punctures one of the car’s tyres.

One of the criminals offers to help change the car wheel and pickpockets the credit card in the process. The police report that, using this stunt, thieves have succeeded in withdrawing large sums of money from their victims’ accounts.

Police advise members of the public to call 114 if they witness the trick in action.
