Chalk symbols...maybe worth a look

This is interesting....

These are chalk markings burglars apparently put on properties to give other burglars a guide as to whether the property is worthy of a visit.

I Think that years ago tramps and the travelling community placed signs on walls to indicate if the particular premises would likely give them money or food for items they were selling.

I've dug out a stick of chalk and drawn the 'Nothing worth stealing' symbol on my wall Wink

This looks like a typical urban myth, and West Midlands Police seem to agree.
