Secret Symbols the burglars use
The secret symbols indicate whether a home offers rich pickings, has already been burgled or, more disturbingly, is occupied by a vulnerable female.
These are the most commonly found symbols to help residents stay one step ahead.
“Knowledge is power.
“We do not want to alarm people, only inform them.”
As well as identifying prime property, the secret code also warns burglars away from homes which have nothing worth stealing or are too risky to break into.
New Warning from the Guardia Civil
If you are a resident please keep an eye out for these little pieces of plastic which are inserted between door frames of properties.
They are put there by burgles/thieves.... if the plastic remains in place, this indicates that the property is unoccupied.
If found report the incident to the Guardia Civil by calling 062.
