Crimes Against Seniors Unit are cautioning seniors to be aware of Distraction Thefts

For Immediate release: July 7th, 2016police
Hamilton, ON

The Hamilton Police Service have recently identified a trend affecting the senior’s community and are investigating a number of distraction thefts that have taken place in the City of Hamilton over the last month.

It is believed that suspects identify senior victims and engage them in conversation, sometimes asking for directions. The suspect will then want to thank the victim for their assistance and provide the victim with a piece of jewelry. The suspects will then get close enough to remove the jewelry that the senior is wearing. The victims usually don’t discover the theft until after the interaction with the suspect.
