Chester CCTV catches pickpockets

A gang of pickpockets in Chester thought they had got away with stealing people’s possessions – until CCTV footage was retrieved which helped catch the criminals and bring them to justice.

Five Romanian men were seen deliberately targeting OAPs near the transport interchange and then later in the city centre – with one stealing the purse of an eighty-one-year old before escaping. CCTV footage was obtained after British Transport Police saw the men acting suspiciously at the city’s railway station. They tipped off operators who duly informed the police. All five were charged with theft and all were convicted at West Cheshire Magistrates’ Court. Each will serve three months in prison.

Thankfully, the elderly woman was given her purse back.

Members of the public are now being warned to be extra vigilant, especially with Christmas approaching. In this instance, CCTV was on hand to bring the criminals to justice. Next time it may not be so easy.
