Thieves banned from city's pubs; WALES newsbulletin.

MOBILE phone and handbag thieves are being banned in a city centre's pubs and clubs.

A total of 11 thieves caught targeting customers of pubs and clubs in Swansea will now be unable to enter more than 50 venues for between six months and two years.

Landlords and managers of licensed premises in the city have been issued with photographs and other details of the banned thieves. It is part of a new scheme by the Safer Swansea Business Crime Reduction Partnership (BCRP), a network of businesses which work together to tackle persistent troublemakers.

Norma Thomas, Safer Swansea's BCRP co-ordinator, said: "I would also urge people on a night out not to leave their personal belongings unattended or on view to reduce the potential of being targeted by thieves."
