Police tell shoppers they've been 'bagged' about valuables

The Associated Press

NASHUA (AP) - Police in Nashua are helping people who aren't watching out for their purses and wallets while shopping.

They conducted a crime prevention campaign over the weekend called "You've Been Bagged," by the police.

The department partnered with several supermarkets recently to raise awareness for protecting personal property. The officers made contact with over 30 people who left their items unattended while shopping. They gave them tips on securing their valuables.

Police say it only takes seconds for someone to steal a purse or wallet, and most times, the thief is very nonchalant and will mix in with a crowd, rather than the typical misconception that they grab the item and run.
