Default Be careful in Supermarkets !!!

Any of you coming out be careful with your bags & wallets in the Supermarkets. Guy brushed against me at lunchtime in the Eroski ( the one mid way between PP and Pollenca , just off the main road and me wallet gone out of me pocket. According to the Police there is a gang operating there regularly ( and seems prevalent on Weds ) so just take care . Had about 140 Euros nicked plus credit cards and UK driving licence

Only upside is that I've had to cancel BLT's cards as a lot of em are joint.

Maybe quids in already

Just be careful with your valuables

Sorry about your unfortunate experience, Bonyslad. Thanks for warning us. I never associate things like that with PP. Just goes to show, doesn't it? It can happen anywhere.

Sorry to hear that.

I never take any chances anywhere and am always aware of anyone standing too close etc. When we were there I used a little cross body bag (sometimes shortening it, to put it round my waist). Mr M however is not so OCD as me and was happy to stick his wallet and driving licence in his back pocket until I stuck my oar in. He does this even though he's been stung before! With what he does for a career, this behaviour astounds me!

Bony,

Sorry to hear that. We'll be visiting this store frequently in a couple of weeks time. Will be careful and will warn the Missus accordingly. Good to see your sense of humour not affected.

Will be a picture of sartorial elegance!

JK and the boys did the business. Determined and professional. JK's legendary status is now confirmed.

Spaniards have warned us about this. They are very quick to point out the people concerned are not Spanish. They are also operating in the little Eroski
