Secret code used by burglars, was spotted on the walls of a number of houses in Gestel the secret code was written in chalk on the walls to give information to other burglars. A vigilant municipality employee who detected this posted a warning on Facebook.
There often stories about different methods used by burglars making their round in the community, and often they turn out to be nonsense. This time it seems that the municipality is of a different opinion.
Those residents with dogs, have a slogan in chalk, poop is delicious on the walls in front of their property. Others have a smiley, or XO signs. They look like drawings by children, but they are placed much too high on the walls for them to have been made by children.
The advisory is to get rid of the drawings and to be more alert to any suspect activities.
