Wellesbourne Airfield
Wellesbourne Airfield

The significance of the chalk symbols is that they may indicate to a burglar that a certain type of property is more suitable to break-in to than another in the same area.

Police believe that various symbols are used to indicate whether the property belongs to a vulnerable person, a wealthy person, or a nervous person, or if the property is alarmed or been burgled previously.

Anyone with information should contact PC Craig Purcell, Shipston Police Safer Neighbourhood Team on 01789 444670.
