« A woman found food thrown at the door of her house, but she ignored the sign. »


One day, a woman discovered food leftovers at the door of her house. At first, she thought it was a joke, but when a police officer explained what it meant, she was greatly surprised.

Maria Celino-Straker from Manchester (UK) had the unpleasant surprise of discovering food remnants at her doorstep.

Someone had thrown a can of red beans onto the doorstep of the house, and upon seeing it, the woman thought that a child or a young man in the neighborhood had played a prank.

However, a police officer explained that such a gesture could have an explanation that few would have thought of. When she heard what it was about, the woman was more than surprised.

One day, upon returning home, Maria Celino-Straker from Manchester saw that someone had thrown an entire can of red beans at her door.

As expected, the discovery left a bitter taste in her mouth, and she pondered for a moment whether a child or a young man in the neighborhood wanted to « get revenge » or have fun by playing a joke.

The British woman cleaned up, but she couldn’t easily forget what had happened. Later, while talking to a relative (who happened to be a former police officer), she told him what had happened.

When the law enforcement officer heard the details of the incident, he explained that it was not just a gesture done for pure amusement, but rather a sign as serious as possible.

According to the details revealed by the former police officer, food remnants or various items left at the entrance of a house can be a clear sign that a thief has set his eyes on the house.

To ensure that the owners are away, the perpetrator monitors whether the mess or the items left there are removed. Otherwise, the thief acts, knowing that nobody is home.

Shocked by what she had found out, Maria Celino-Straker decided to share this detail with her Facebook followers. Through a post, the woman recounted what had happened to her and what she had learned from the police, in order to warn other people of a potential danger.
