Toronto clubs are great places to let loose and dance, but they're also great spots for pickpockets.
Toronto Police Service (TPS) is asking for help in identifying two suspects who are allegedly behind a string of pickpockets in Toronto clubs downtown and in the entertainment district, according to a press release.
So, if you've recently gone out for a night on the town and come back missing a wallet or phone, you're not alone.
TPS said they have been receiving reports of stolen belongings from inside busy nightclubs between 11 p.m. and 2 a.m. from March 2022 to October 2022.
According to police, the pickpockets target clubgoers that are dancing and socializing and steal their phones and wallets from pockets, unattended purses, and tables.
TPS has released photos of the suspects leaving an establishment near Queens Quay West and Rees Street on October 14.
