19th Stopped Pick-Pocket: Rome Bus Pick-Pockets Foiled!

Dear Clothing Arts,

I was in Rome, traveling on a public bus toward a site outside of the center - Sunday Portese market. The bus was packed with folks going to the market. Before getting on the bus, I made sure my zipper and flap were secure.

On the bus, there were some nefarious looking characters who must have taken a notice to me. When I got on off the bus, I noticed that the button and zipper were open, but the cash ( 60 euros) were in tacked because they were in the inside pocket. The pants pocket was deep enough that they couldn't reach all the way down to get anything.

Thanks you for saving my money!

Cory, New York City.
