Robbers in downtown Kingston have intensified their efforts to rob shoppers, a police source has informed.
The officer yesterday said that people purporting to be vendors are snatching shoppers belongings without some of them even knowing.

According to the source, the "camouflage robbers" try to obtain a sale while they themselves or their confederate robs the shoppers.
Downtown Kingston has been a haven for thieves.
On Monday, a man who snatched a gold chain from a woman's neck in the area was sentenced to six months in prison, hours after committing the crime.
