China troubled by chopstick pickpockets
It seems pickpocketing has become more sophisticated and bold in China.
The Chinese pickpockets are snatching valuables with chopsticks or long tweezers, the Huffington Post reported.
Earlier, Shanghaiist and MSNBC posted video clips showing thieves snatching valuables such as wallet and cell phones out of their unwitting victims’ pockets with eating utensils in China.
The snatchers approach from the behind and use long chopsticks to grab valuables while the victims shop around or walk blankly.
