TORROX residents have been urged to watch for ‘age-old’ burglary tactics, following a spate of break-ins.

Many people have found a small piece of plastic wedged between their front door and door frame.

If the plastic is still there after two or three days the burglars know the house is empty and make their move.

A special task force was set up last month following 15 burglaries in December in the Pago Benamar area of Torrox (see ‘Task force targets thieves’, issue 204).
