Burglars Use Beans
In the News
A mother has warned people to be aware of a burglary trick involving kidney beans that could mean their homes are being targeted.
Maria Celino-Straker thought she was simply the victim of a silly prank when she woke to find a mess of kidney beans on her doorstep in North Tyneside on Monday morning.
But after speaking to a relative who is an ex-police officer, she now believed the mess was a sign of something more calculated.
She said the kidney beans were being used as a tactic by potential burglars wanting to scope out whether or not people were at home.
