Scoot-and-run robbery

After a relaxing day at the beach, Ben had his bag snatched by a thief on a scooter. Foreign beachgoers are often targeted by thieves in many of Mexico’s coastal hotspots. Ben was distracted by the sights on a busy street when his bag was snatched off his shoulder. The thief sped away on a moped; Ben tried to follow but the thief was too quick. Ben asked locals where the nearest police station was and made his way there to file a police report. Ben was reimbursed by his travel insurer for the theft.
