Hotel towel thieves beware of RFID tags on your booty

by Gareth Mankoo

We’ve heard numerous stories of people who love taking home towels from hotels, both, lavish and not; not realizing that the same is public property and has been used by several before them to clean dry their unmentionables. So for the gullible, the hygiene police are suddenly wide awake and aware about your criminal activities. The new RFID tags by a Florida-based company are washable and can easily track down towels that have gone missing. Thus, you are subject to much humiliation.

If you are a thief then be warned if you think of stealing towels from hotels in Miami, Honolulu and Manhattan. It’s proved to be a productive measure so far, so expect the fad to spread all over.
