NYPD Posts Warnings of Migrant Pick Pocket Gangs; NYC Migrant Pickpocketing Teams are the Newest Headache for NYPD as Trio Busted for String of West Village Bar Thefts

NYPD Posts Warnings of Migrant Pick Pocket Gangs:
As crimes by illegals skyrockets across the country the New York Police Dept. (NYPD) has begun posting notices to citizens to be aware of migrant pick pocket gangs roaming the Big Apple.
A recent post by Viral News NYC showed video of an NYPD electronic billboard truck warning residents to be aware of their surroundings and belongings.
“Times Square NYC,” the account wrote, “A NYPD billboard truck saying ‘BEWARE KF [sic] PICKPOCKETS,’ for the past year and a half, there has been an uptick of pickpocketing in the midtown Manhattan area. Migrants have set up multiple pickpocketing crews throughout the city, and multiple have been arrested.”
Big city crime perpetrated by gangs of migrants has been soaring all across the country. As the New York Post reported, many police departments are becoming increasingly worried about the Venezuelan gang Tren de Aragua and its growing cooperation with the Salvadoran MS13.
The outlet noted the NYPD says that Tren de Aragua is recruiting new members right out of the Big Apple’s many migrant shelters.
“This is organized crime. It’s just like the Mafia,” Paul DiGiacomo, president of the city’s Detectives’ Endowment Association told the paper.
South American gangs are also flooding out into the New York suburbs and engaging in organized retail theft in malls and store. --->READ MORE HERE
NYC migrant pickpocketing teams are the newest headache for NYPD as trio busted for string of West Village bar thefts:
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. --->READ MORE HERE
