If you're thinking about a relaxing night out be aware that thieves are about and Police are warning pub-goers to be on their guard after recent thefts in Canterbury.


Detectives are linking three reports of theft where a man and a woman have stolen purses or handbags from women in pubs in the St Dunstan’s and St Radigund’s areas of the city.

Man and woman

Inspector Vicki Tyler from Canterbury Community Safety Unit said: ‘On all three occasions the victims have been enjoying a meal with friends when their bag or purse has been stolen by a man and a woman sitting close by.

‘We have been looking at CCTV and enquiries are ongoing to identify and locate the two offenders. In the meantime we urge people to be vigilant and to keep their possessions close to hand when they are out and about in the city.’

Can you help?

Both the man and woman are described as being aged between 35 and 45. The woman is described as having light-coloured frizzy hair, red blotchy skin and chipped teeth. The man is described as being bald and having a large belly.
