Pickpockets target Busch Stadium
Thursday, October 20, 2011
ST. LOUIS (AP) — St. Louis police are urging fans attending the World Series to be on the lookout for pickpockets.
KSDK-TV reports that two men deemed professional pickpockets have already been arrested, and police think there may be more victims. Authorities believe the two men have convictions in other states.
Police say the men work together. One says he lost the lens to his glasses and while a crowd gathers to help, the other steals wallets.
Officers on foot, in cars and on bikes are providing patrol around the ballpark. After Game 2 on Thursday, the series moves to Texas for three games. The final two games, if necessary, would return to Busch Stadium next Wednesday and Thursday.
