BART police to hand out cards warning of phone thefts

Bay Area

BART police will be handing out cards warning riders to be aware of their surroundings to ward off cellphone thieves. 

BART says officers will be on trains, primarily between the Embarcadero and Balboa Park stations from midday to early afternoon to hand out the index card-sized handouts featuring tips on protecting cellphones and emphasizing the importance of stowing devices and looking up from their phones. 

According to BART, more than 400 electronic item thefts were reported to BART in the first four months this year.
