Pickpockets at restaurants

The Wayzata Police Department today issued a Crime Alert for Situational Awareness indicating there has been an “uptick in purse/wallet thefts,” from Wayzata restaurants.

This was on the heels of social media reports over the weekend on Nextdoor and the Wayzata Fan Club sharing the concerns.

Police encourage residents and visitors to keep purses and handbags in sight at all times; and to keep a watchful eye for people who appear out of place, are stalling, or hanging around looking for opportunity.

If you see anything suspicious please report it to 911.
