Thieves continue to steal mobiles with “paper cover” trick

Person using his/her mobile phone.

Police Region Öst has earlier in 2019 warned about thieves at various institutions of higher education and libraries throughout the region. Unfortunately, the wave of thefts is continuing, and the same trick is often used. A student who is sitting and reading with the mobile lying beside is approached by a man and addressed in Italian. The man places at the same time some paper over the mobile, and when he subsequently leaves takes the paper and telephone hidden under it with him. (Article on polisen.se in Swedish)
