Watch your back. On the occasion of the arrest of two people on Saturday in Lille, the police alerted to the increase in theft incidents using the technique known as "back to back". The victims are mainly customers of cafes or restaurants.

Around 1 p.m. on Saturday, transport police officers, the SISTC, patrol the Euralille shopping center. Officials spot the merry-go-round of two men, seated at a table in the Burger King restaurant. One of the suspects tries to search the pockets of the client sitting behind him.

One searches and the other watches

The police decided not to intervene immediately and to discreetly monitor the two individuals. One continues to search the jacket of his future victim while the other is on the lookout. The thief finally manages to seize an object in the pocket of the client who suspects nothing. He immediately gives this object to his accomplice who leaves, quickly followed by his acolyte.

The police alert the victim who confirms the disappearance of his cell phone. Having kept an eye on the duo, the officials have no trouble finding them not far away, allée de Liège. They are arrested. In the pocket of one of them, the stolen phone is found. The suspects are placed in police custody.
