Just as the holiday rush is getting tighter, the public is warned of individuals particularly pickpockets who will take advantage of the rush.
Shown below is a series of photos in a jeepney in Cagayan de Oro captured on a cellphone camera of a suspected pickpocket wearing baseball cap, shades and carrying a backpack. These photos have already been shared in social media.
This “modus” is very common among jeepney pickpockets covering one hand with the backpack while it reaches over the unsuspecting passenger seated next to him.
The use of mobile phones with camera has come in handy these days…
Just a warning though, they don’t operate alone…it has an accomplice passing off as another regular passenger.
