Burglars are using coded chalk symbols to let other criminals know which properties to target.
The marks shown in the picture have been dubbed ‘the Da Pinchi Code’. They are drawn by would-be thieves, indicating if a house is vulnerable, has been burgled before or whether there is anything worth stealing.
If you see any unusual markings on your home, low rise walls, pavement, kerbs or bins, take a photo, remove them and contact the police on 101.
PLEASE SHARE TO WARN OTHERS.
