Ladies, Hang on to Your Frozen Lunches and Your Wallet at Trader Joe's

Not a fair trade.

Swank Coolidge Corner has become a hotbed of crime! Fresh off a drug buy gone awry at Peet's, the normally peaceful 'hood is now home to pickpocketers frequenting Trader Joe's. Customers were harassed late last week by a duo of robbers, who then used their bounty to shop at Target. Universal Hub reports on their remarkably unsophisticated technique.

"A second victim at same Trader Joe's reported that a female engaged her in conversation while a second female tried to pull her wallet from her bag." Apparently the thieves are targeting only women, so watch your wallets, ladies. Note: Their two-buck chuck could make a fine weapon. [UH, Earlier]
