Burglars are getting smarter every day!

It’s true that many burglars are opportunists or just junkies looking for an easy loot, but the recent burglary technique, I’ll just call it “sticky hands”, makes me reconsider this statement.
I first read about this new burglary technique in the Croydon Guardian, and to make a long story short, the new burglars’  trick is to mark the easier loot with a special locksmith sticker.
The police received few concerned calls, and the it’s trying to establish if there is any connection between recent burglaries and the locations where the stickers were found.
As a locksmith in London, I’m not a bit happy about these news. Unfortunately people have  hard time trusting a locksmith sometimes, and this sticker makes it even harder. Our trade is under fire here, we get enough bad publicity as is, and the “locksmith sticker” is another blow for our trade.
