Police warn shoppers about potential ‘distraction thefts’

From the Ottawa Citizen: Within the span of four days, there have been at least 10 incidents reported of “distracted thefts” around grocery shopping centers. The police are urging customers to be alert, as “the grifters” are targeting not just the senior population. These incidents have allegedly occurred between the hours of noon to mid-afternoon. Police are urging people to contact the police if they know more information.
