“Da Pinchi Code”
What does this mean?
It has come to our attend lately through Social Media & Crime Prevention meetings that criminals are using a code to indicate to fellow criminals which houses in an estate were worth robbing and which were too much trouble.
I mentioned this to a friend about the code and it transpired that they had seen what they thought was chalk scribbling on the outside walls of home in an estate a few days previous. They thought it was just kids messing about but when we drove over and looked we could make out some of the symbols that you can see in the diagram.
It seems that the criminals have a reconnaissance team that go into estates offering to do odd jobs or begging and mark the houses as they go.
Don’t entertain casual labourers unless they are known or recommended to you and keep an eye out for these signs
