Phone snatch compilation

If using your phone on the street be aware of your surroundings. A majority of phone snatches are committed by an offender on a bicycle or a pillion passenger on a moped.

Walk along the building line and away from the kerb.

Hold the phone in the hand closest to the building line.

Do not leave your phone in an outer jacket pocket or on a table in a coffee shop or pub.
