Are you just going to Odessa?

  • Already close your pockets, all the values move deeper and closer to the body, keep an eye on your bags and backpacks, hear and feel it, and especially in public transport.
  • And do not think that your pocket with zipper on the chest is not interesting for anyone except you.
  • Also do not forget that we have police which find a stolen rarely and only for "voluntary contributions", well, and CCTV in the supermarket did just only for safe anything in supermarket, not for your stuff and pockets.
  • Oh, and the most important, do not forget that even the most reliable places can be easily searched and stolen if you are distracted by some action. So if somebody  accidentally slammed on your shoulder when leaving the bus - you have no camera in your backpack.
  • Be careful if you're the witness of a theft (you see somebody stealing someone at the moment) - to prevent a thief you take a risk - do it carefully.
