Watch out for this scam. Police are urging visitors to the city center

to be especially vigilant for a new gang operating a slick routine that

is aimed at stealing from unwary persons. They say that the gang usually

comprises four members, one adult and three younger ones.

While the three younger ones, all appearing sweet and innocent, divert

their "mark" (or "intended target") with a show of friendliness and fun,

the fourth -- the eldest -- sneaks in from behind the person's back to

expertly rifle undetected through his or her pockets and/or purses or

bags for any valuables being carried.

The attached picture taken is from CCTV operating in the inner city

shows the gang in operation.
