Several times in recent years, police released images of chalk and paint signs which have been spotted on roads, kerbs and walls near homes. Some burglars like to work in packs and these symbols have been used to share information for potential burglars about what they may find in someone’s home.
If you see any of these markings close to your home, it is more than likely your home or your neighbour’s home is being targeted. We would advise you to protect your home imminently. The only encouraging thing to take from all of this is that alarmed houses have been marked for a reason. Burglars will tend to stay away from homes with a modern well functioning alarm system. Their logic being: why take the risk when there are so many non-alarmed properties to try?
