The Sanya Police Department is warning local residents and tourists in Sanya to be cautious of bag-snatchers at Sanya Bay beach.

At about 11:00am on the morning of October 27th, a tourist from Shanxi province and her family were relaxing on the beach of Sanya Bay, when a thief approached them and grabbed three handbags that were lying under the tree near them before fleeing. As of now, the police are still investigating the case.

Ms. Li explained to the police that they had lost more than RMB10,000 in cash, 3 mobile phones, all of their bank cards & ID cards and assorted other belongings.

According to the head of the local police station, there have been several similar cases reporting to the police at Sanya Bay beach since the 2013 National Day holiday, and tourists are advised to be extra careful with their valuables and always wary of the risk of robbery, to reduce their chances of becoming victims.
