Scam Alert!

There's a bad scam hitting our city streets.
Read about it below. Be on the lookout!

There is a slick routine aimed at stealing from unwary persons. They say that the gang usually comprises three or four members. While the three younger ones, all appearing to be cute and innocent, divert their "mark" (or intended target) with a show of friendliness and fun, the fourth - the eldest of this gang of criminals- sneaks in from behind the person's back to expertly rifle undetected through pockets and bags for any valuables being carried. The following picture taken from CTV operating in the inner city shows the gang in operation:
