Police say ‘slider’ thefts are happening across metro Atlanta


COBB COUNTY, Ga. – “Sliding” is a method police say that many crooks are using to steal from people while they’re pumping gas. 

Police said “sliders” are thieves who snatch women’s bags when they’re busy pumping gas.

Channel 2’s Chris Jose spoke to one victim who had her purse stolen two weeks ago in Cobb County. She said it took just seconds.

“I don’t know if it was more than 30 seconds,” the woman said.

Police believe the case is related to other “sliding” cases in metro Atlanta.

We’re hearing from police about what all people should be aware of the next time they pull into a gas station, on Channel 2 Action News starting at 4
