The Rotterdam police and Public Prosecutor are targeting young people with bling in a new approach to show that crime does not pay, the Telegraaf reports.
If a young person can't give a sufficient explanation about how exactly he paid for his Rolex, or thousand euros jacket, the police will confiscate the items, according to the newspaper. Officers will be specially trained to recognize these expensive items.
The Rotterdam police already check young people driving expensive cars. Checking bling is an expansion of this approach.
