Be vigilant

by Nathalie
(San Pedro de Alcantara)

Today I was robbed on the boulevard in San Pedro. I was walking with Lily our dog. Suddenly a charming guy comes from a terrace with a beautiful dog, same type as Lily. He starts talking about my dog, the dogs say hello and before I realised my driving licence (that I keep in a holder together with some money) in my bag was gone.

Thing is I realised it inmediately and knew who had done it. He went back sitting on the terrace with his friends. I walked back to the guy and "asked" my drivinglicense back and he played dumb and innocent. What the hell do you do in the situation. I cant prove it and his friends were looking at me like I was the one who was crazy! He said he was a friend of the onces who do the sculptures on the beach. I dont know if that is true, as he is a thief and probably a lier, but be careful!”

Good to know
by: Jo Juice❤️Mad

Wow, I go roller blading there everyday and walk both my dogs there afterwards.Thanks for letting us all know. It is just awful especially as we are dog lovers and always get chatting to people with their dogs.

Beware of your handbags
by: Marbella Family

We are so sorry to hear about this. Unfortunately, this is reminder that we all need to be a little vigilant when we are out and about, particularly as summer rolls around. Never leave your handbags hanging on the back of your chair, keep your money separated in different pockets/compartments (not all in one wallet) and stay vigilant in parking lots or areas of large traffic.
