RCMP reminding citizens to protect purses

Advertisement

In a release Corporal Jodi Shelkie said, “This is a crime of opportunity, so don’t give them the opportunity. Always keep your purse on your person. Don’t put it in a shopping cart. It is very easy for a thief to take a purse when someone’s attention is elsewhere.”

She went on to say, “Sometimes people run into a corner store and leave their purse or wallet in their car or they are fuelling up their vehicle and they leave their purse on the front seat of the car with the door unlocked. These are all opportunities for thieves.”

Some of the consequences of having a purse or wallet stolen include the loss of money, the hassle of cancelling and re-ordering credit cards and bank cards, potential identity theft, and feelings of victimization and violation.
