It might sound strange, but if you find small white stones outside of your home then you need to contact authorities as a matter of urgency.
They could be pretty easily dismissed for an escaped pebble from someone’s garden or kids trying to mess with you, but the reality is unfortunately much darker than that.
Criminals have been leaving these little white stones outside people’s homes, on their drives or under car tires as signs to other thieves to let them know ‘vulnerable’ people live in the property, according to the Mirror.
Neighborhood watch groups have now become increasingly concerned about this strange and unnerving activity and are encouraging people to contact police if they see any of this going on.
So far this sinister venture has been reported in several roads in Portishead, Bristol and worryingly, a man delivering charity bags has been spotted dropping the stones around the neighborhood.
Here’s what social networks say about this:
Tracey McCulloch I dont think they are leaving these stones for just any other random thieves. They are leaving them for their own pack. It looks like this delivery guy drops the stones and his buddies come in later. Since he has been in the houses he gets the information. If other criminal gangs are doing this they could be leaving other things as a message too. Not very nice. I hope everyone makes sure to lock up an stay safe.
