Ladies Watch Out

INCIDENT AT JOHN LEWIS STORE, BLUEWATER

A warning if any ladies inyour family go to a big town or busy place to shop!

This is similar to the way bags used to get snatched from under toilet doors off the floor.

What is needed to know now is where do ladies put their bags now?

A woman visited the toilet in John Lewis @ Bluewater and hung her handbag on the back of the toilet door.

  As she carried on out her business, a hand suddenly appeared over the top of the stall and grabbed her bag clean off the hook!

She immediately reported the incident to the head of security, who in turn informed the manager of the store.

 

A couple of days later she had a call from the head of security to say her bag had been found without her purse.

  So she arranged a convenient time to go and meet the manage to collect her things.

On her arriving at the John Lewis store at the agreed time, the manager was not expecting her & neither was the head of security.

No one from the store had actually called her as the bag had still not been found.

When the lady got home, her house had been burgled with no sign of forced entry.

  The Police believe the robbers had used her driving licence for the address and her keys to let themselves in.

This is real- it isn't just a scaremongering story.  Many will be so shocked at how complex bag snatching crime has become.

Please be extra vigilant ladies and gents (with your man bags) there are a lot of desparate criminals out there.

PLEASE FORWARD THIS TO ALL YOUR FREINDS AND CONTACTS SO WORD GETS ABOUT.
