007 - "King of Pickpockets" & Safety Expert: Bob Arno
“How do you become a pickpocket?”
Bob Arno, a Swedish-born American entertainer, author, and criminologist gets asked this a lot.
And if you had the chance to ask him yourself, in person, he would have your wallet long before you had your answer (you would get it back though).
Recounting his journey from a career on stage as a comedic magician to using his expertise to help Europol crack down on crime syndicates, the “Pickpocket King” tells Rob Konrad everything he’s learned about the psychology of thieving.
In this episode, Bob shares fascinating insights into the mindsets of thieves and victims, different varieties of street crime around the world, and how to spot – and get along with – street criminals.
Plus, you’ll hear about a special wallet he’s had stolen and returned over 150 times, and a house visit to a genuine Mafioso.
“The best criminals… are fabulous social engineers” – Bob Arno
