Lots of good pickpocketing footage (see below) from a recent TeleCinco news piece of pickpockets within the Barcelona metro system.
Quotes worth repeating:
“20,000 arrests in one year in the metro system of Barcelona alone.”
“150 pickpockets work on the system, working in teams of five, six or seven people.”
“Targets are tourists, not just because they’re less suspicious, but also because they’re less likely to bring an incident to court.”
“Different nationalities have different metro lines they consider their own. In Sants Estacio it’s Maghrebis, in Passeig de Gracia it’s Romas and Latin Americans reserve line one.”
Thanks to Nacho de Ramón for sharing the video.
