Have you or anyone you know been pickpocketed/purse snatched in Vegas? Explain a little bit so we know the when and where. Its a pretty simple question and I've always wondered this. I normally walk behind my girlfriend a step or two in large traffic areas and Im constantly checking my back pocket. I've never encountered anything but its one of those natural instincts that kicks in when Im walking the strip or downtown. I read something about someone getting their Ipad snatched on the strip but I would think its pretty hard to do that downtown because of the lack of open space to get away. This also isnt a downtown vs strip thread. Im genuinely curious.
