Many people are robbed every day. Criminals take something from their pockets or their bags. It can be a phone or a wallet.

One organisation wants to stop these criminals. The organisation wants to help good people. It tells people that criminals can take their things. How does the organisation tell people?

Some men work for the organisation. These men put things in people’s pockets. People don’t know about this. When they find the thing, they are shocked. The things look like a wallet or a phone.

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
