Cops stick it to thieves


POLICE say they are using stickers in a bid to thwart pickpockets ruining revellers Christmas nights out in Edinburgh.

Vinyl transfers saying ‘Thieves love your stuff’ are being displayed in bars Lulu, Whynot, The Standing Order, Opal Lounge, Shanghai, and Le Monde.

Officers will also be on patrol in the area and within bars and clubs, delivering crime prevention cards and advice to those enjoying a night out in the run up to Christmas.

Inspector Dianne Bruce from Lothian and Borders Police said: “This campaign is designed to remind members of the public that they should remain vigilant while they are enjoying themselves to ensure their great night out isn’t spoiled through crime.”
