Increased incidence of gold chain snatching

At a meeting with Neasden Neighbourhood Watch and my Dudden Hill Safer Neighbourhoods Team, I was informed that there has been an increased spate of incidents involving gold chain snatching from Asian women.

The Willesden and Brent Times has now reported on the issue – LINK

The article reports of increased incidences in the Church End area, but I am also advised by my Safer Neighbourhood Team that there has also been a wave of gold chain snatching in the Neasden area, surrounding the Shopping Centre. The victims have predominantly been Asian women. The Police have advised to take extra caution and to not expose jewellery for criminals to catch sight of.

Plain clothes officers will be patrolling hot spots where these crimes have been occurring.
