Mobile phones thefts: Advice to concert goers
South Wales Police is appealing to concert goers to properly secure their mobile phones following a number being lost, damaged and stolen.
At a recent concert in Cardiff city centre 21 people reported their mobile phones stolen.
Three phones were later found in the venue’s lost property store and a number of damaged phones were also discovered once the concert had ended.
Sergeant Mike Kings, from Cardiff City Centre Neighbourhood Policing Team, said: “Many people carry their mobiles in their pockets but at a busy event, this can mean they are easily dropped or sometimes stolen.
“We would urge everyone to take particular care of their phones if they are going to an event such as a music concert.
“Our advice would be to keep your mobile in a front or inside zipped-up pocket, in a secure bag, or leave it at home.”
Officers are continuing to liaise with concert venues to raise awareness of the issue.
