While they had been responsible for investigating thefts of wallets and bank cards in public transport in the metropolis, the police officers of the theft-violence group of the Departmental Security followed the trail of two women, from of Bosnia, says Sud Ouest.
Their method was well established. After having chosen their “preys”, tourists or the elderly, they diverted their attention when their victims bought a tram ticket at a terminal or when they withdrew money from an ATM. After having discreetly recorded the confidential code of the card of their targets, they followed them discreetly before stealing their wallet.

They were both referred to the prosecution.
