Police have warned people not to take the law into their own hands after a number of posters appeared accusing a woman of being a thief.
The posters in Dover say her targets include people drawing money from cash machines, those carrying mobile phones and the elderly, young and disabled.
Yet officers say that no crimes have been reported in connection to them.
AKent Police spokesman said: “We are aware of the posters, however no crimes have been reported in relation to them.
“Officers would like to take this opportunity to remind residents not to take the law into their own hands.
“If anyone has a crime to report please contact Kent Police on 101 or 999 in an emergency."
The posters, also reproduced on social media, said that she also tries to steal from people loading shopping into their cars.
They say anyone approached by the woman should guard their possessions and report her to police.
The bottom line says: “This person has no limits, she is a brazen thief and must be stopped.”
The poster is on Facebook along with video of the woman being confronted over her alleged behaviour.
She walks away when she is approached and spoken to by another woman who films the encounter.
