Handbag thief - this guy brazenly grabbed a bag containing 600 from a customer as she was sitting in a cafe next to Madame Tussauds. The "considerate" thief left three passports belonging to the victim and her relatives at the Sherlock Holmes Museum, where he was caught on CCTV.

As he enters the museum, the passports are wrapped in a tissue box belonging to the victim and can clearly be seen in his hand, and upon exit, the mobile phone and a packet of chewing gum (contents from the bag) are seen in his hand.
