You really can not attract good quality tenants with a pocket picking scheme. Landlords who institute this type of practice have other money pilfering schemes that go with it. It is just bad business. Tenants will usually leave these landlords with more than enough damage and unpaid rent to get even. If people are always leaving a trashed out place with rent due, a landlord should step back and take a good look at themselves and the ways they have their hand in the tenant's pocket.
