Beware, fake locksmith stickers signal to burglers

lock_2737571b[1]I have been informed that a number of stickers like this have started to appear around Bexley. They are similar or the same as those found by detectives in Wandsworth recently as reported here in the Evening Standard.

It is believed that burglars put the stickers on people’s front doors to signal that they are an easy target for break-ins having earlier called at addresses to see if people are at home during the day.

Wandsworth council’s crime prevention spokesman Jonathan Cook said: “There is growing evidence that some organised teams of burglars may be using this method to target homes in south London. We are therefore urging local residents to keep a very close eye out for these stickers and if they find one to remove it straight away and report it to the police.”

Sound advice.
