The secret language of crime
Burglars are scrawling secret symbols in the street to help other criminals know which properties to target. The symbols may indicate that a home is wealthy, has already been burgled or may have nothing worth stealing. They may also indicate if there is a vulnerable female in the home, or if the occupant is nervous, afraid or gullible.
The meaning behind a number of the symbols has been decoded by officers who have put out the information in a bid to warn the public.
The police say the code could be a valuable tool in the fight against crime.
