On 9.11.2013 an iPhone disappeared from a table in a pub in the Wilmslow area.

In all three incidents the offenders were a male and female couple who appeared to be french. Both of them were in their 20's and both had dark hair. The female was wearing a cream coloured jacket and jeans.
They have approached members of the public with a map asking for directions. They place the map down on the table and then lift up the iphone with the map from the table before they leave.

It is thought they are using a dark Ford Mondeo bearing foreign plates
