Pickpockets in Tenerife Los Gigantes Area and South

Tenerife pickpockets los gigantes


These two tried to steal a wallet out of a bag yesterday so keep an eye out for them and be careful if you are around Los Gigantes although they move around the south as well..

The person filing this report said that it was lucky his bag was hard to get into.

They work together; she serves as a distraction while he gets busy with pick pocketing.

Make sure you’re always aware of your surroundings and pay attention to the safety of your personal belongings at all times.
