The title of this thread is pretty accurate. Seems like there is at least one new incident every day.
Yep.

A change in the “grab the purse while your getting gas” theft, the criminal shows up with your purse right after the grab, at your house with keys to let himself in and rob you again.

Interesting with the change in how you start your car in recent years, the out come of this robbery also changes.

A woman most likely in addition to her driver’s license with her address has her car fob with her house key in her purse. The keys used to hang from the steering column, but now cars have start buttons. She is now stranded with the car as the key fob is now out of range, giving the robber a few minutes to immediately drive to her home and rob it as well.
Off body carry may be convenient but it's not without certain risks.

I was there 15 years ago too! But we stayed in the apartment of a former French Supreme Court justice, in a very nice neighborhood. As a child, I lived in the 16th arrondissement for a little over a year...which was also a nice area. Paris IS a beautiful city, but it’s biggest problem is that it’s full of unreasonable French people. :mrgreen:
Maybe that was the problem with Paris around the turn of the century. These days the biggest problem in Paris is, how do I say this this? A demographic once associated with Marseille rather than with Paris.
