Last Friday, A Youtube User Astig Tao uploaded a video showing how this "Coin-Dropping" or "Laglag Barya" or "Hulog-Hulog Piso" Modus Operandi works. You can see that the person (near to the Driver's seat) is dropping coins while at the same time moving his seat near to the victim (the lady with a handbag). While doing such, you would notice another person with a black backpack that covers his lap doing something suspicious. When the drama was done, you can then see that the person with a backpack finally took something inside the lady's handbag. Bottomline, every commuters should always and again "always" take care and should always look after their belongings when inside a public transportation.
Now, here's the video we are talking about.
