Kingston police say between Sep. 19 and 22, they received 10 reports of stolen cell phones in the “downtown entertainment district.”
Police say the thefts shared similar characteristics: they all took place at bars in the Hub area, and the victims reported their phone stolen from purses they were wearing at the time. The thefts also took place in the early morning hours.
Police say pickpockets often target environments like the Hub because physical contact in crowded bars make stealing easier.
