Breaking news! Put your money and wallets in your SOCKS! A gang of “pickpocketing migrants” have begun to terrorize America!

The NYPD is honing in on migrant pickpocketing crews that are now working the Big Apple — with nearly 100 asylum seekers already popping up on the NYPD radar, law enforcement sources tell The Post.

One particularly sticky-fingered trio was nabbed over the weekend after allegedly picking pockets at three separate Greenwich Village watering holes in under 30 minutes, according to the sources.



“It’s been happening all the time here,”
one staffer at the Red Lion on Bleeker Street told The Post. “The last few months it’s been intense. Maybe they spread the word, I don’t know. It’s on Friday and Saturday when it’s busy.

“They work as a team,” she said. “It’s creepy.”

Oscar Tarazona, Sebastian Baez and alleged ringleader Lina Jacome-Bedoya, all migrants from Colombia, were charged with grand larceny and possession of stolen property at Bosco on Bleeker, Wicked Willy’s and the Red Lion between 1:30 and 2 a.m. Saturday, authorities said.

Jacome-Bedoya, 23, has been arrested four other times in Manhattan since July, including for allegedly stealing cellphones from handbags and pockets, according to the police sources.





Baez, 25, and Tarazona, 26, were allegedly working in tandem with Jacome-Bedoya in the three new larceny incidents over the weekend, the sources said.

“We have a hard enough time going after actual New Yorkers committing crime,” one frustrated cop told The Post. “Now we have to deal with a whole different subset of people who arrive here with no means of support, no legal means of working or opportunity.

“So, I don’t see how this should come as any surprise,” the cop said.

More than 172,000 migrants from the US border with Mexico have arrived in the five boroughs since the spring of 2022, with about 67,500 now housed in more than 200 city shelters and hotels.

I've had my pocket picked 3 times. Once at Knott's Berry Farm, once in Rome, and once in Mexico.

You can't keep anything in you pant's pockets!

After the last time in Mexico I finally got out of the habit of putting change in my pants pockets after paying for something. It was only about five bucks, but five bucks is five bucks.

do you seriously not feel someone's hand sliding down your pants pocket or are you trying to tell us something?

When all of the guns and ammo Obama bought for federal agencies finally shows up in open shipping containers on NYC corners, like bricks did in Portland, the S will HTF. Cities in Blue States better beware.

Back in the daze when I was clubbing I almost got picked.....hanging out at the bar and I felt hands on my butt....I looked up at the bar mirror and saw a hot chick behind me.....I turned and wrapped my arm around her waist and a hand on her ass.....she quickly ran out of the bar....I found my wallet hanging halfway out of my pocket....guess it wasn't my shapely butt she was after....

And when in crowds of people both your hands should be on top of those items in your front pockets. I operate this way every time I’m in NYC and I’ve never been hit.
