DC police recommends Airtags to combat Canada Goose jacket thefts 3

As the weather continues to get colder as the calendar approaches the official start of winter, more people are wearing warmer clothes, including heavier coats — and for some residents in Washington, DC, that’s proving to be dangerous. DC thieves are targeting residents and college and university students wearing Canada Goose jackets, according to Fox 5 DC news. The story describes how in one case the $1,500 jacket was stolen at gunpoint. “Police said three suspects hopped out of a car, pointed guns, and demanded a victim’s Canada Goose jacket just a few blocks from Dupont Circle.”

Sadly, this crime trend has happened in the city before: This past February the Police warned students who own Canada Goose coats at the city’s George Washington University to be careful. So this winter, DC police are taking additional steps, recommending that residents and students attach Apple AirTags to the $1,500 coats, as well as other pricey items that might be targeted.
