They would throw a toy snake to scare the passerby, whom they believe will  throw his or her phones or bags on the ground  in order to run for safety. They  will then come out of their hideout to steal the belongings before the person returns.”

Such incident, according to the Lagos PPRO , takes place at different places especially at night.

“We want to notify the  general public about the new trick criminal use to steal. If a toy snake is thrown at you, try to be courageous enough not to lose  your belongings and report the matter to the police at the nearest police station,” Mba advised.
