I was in Maidstone today(friday 22/11/19)and spotted some old colleagues of mine from years gone by. They are a close knit troupe of pickpockets and are working the streets of our town centre. It is a very good operation and nets them £100's of pounds a day. Please be careful and warn your families to be extra vigilant and dont think for one minute it will not happen to you because it will ,they are that good. Many of them are known to the police and store detectives but whilst those that are known are being monitored their unknown colleagues are going about their business unseen. I am not proud to have been associated with such scum over the years but the least I can do now is warn everyone of their existence.
