Cash and cards theft – Supersol, Torre del Ma

Wallet (cash and cards) theft in Supersol, Torre del Mar (Lions roundabout)  30.6.2016 am

Two men, smartly holidaywear dressed, cheery, but little command of either English or Spanish. One asked for help in knowing the sugar content of a jar of jam he’d picked off the shelf.

Short while after, same two (perhaps they’d been following us around), one professes not to understand the price of a pineapple half.  While I took him over to the scales, his partner lifted the wallet from my brother-in-law’s shorts while I was at the scales for no more than 45 seconds.  €220, plus credit and debit cards.

Theft not discovered until we had driven five minutes away.  Returned to store, but men no longer there.

Be warned!
