"Are pub workers in on it???" Pickpockets, Beggars, Crime and Scams Tip by Paris92

Long story short the night of the Royal Wedding my friend and I were having drinks at a pub and my purse was stolen off the back of my chair. When I told the pub staff they seemed remarkably unsurprised. So much so that it made my friend and I wonder if perhaps they have something going with somebody in the area. I actually noticed afterward that virtually every pub in the city has a nice big warning for people to watch their bags. Obviously this is a serious problem in the city so be SURE to keep your bag right in front of you at all times. I usually do but I was totally distracted by the Royal Wedding that morning and, truth be told, a big group of firefighters right outside our pub window.
