Being in Los Gigantes over the xmas and new year period we often shop in Mercadona in Playa Arena. Whilst there this woman was very stressed and basically there are many persons doing distraction thefts. What they did to this woman, she was picking some meat out from the meat counter and then the girl will say that?s not very good meat so the victim will be listening to her whilst the suspects partner will then take anything in your bag.
Whilst she was reporting it, at least 2 more people came up to the manager in there and said it happened to them also.
JUST BE AWARE PLEASE. Do not take your eyes off your bag, have it with you at all times in full view and don?t be distracted by people. Just concentrate on what you are doing at all times.
