Pink is the Colour-
DC Andy Brown reminds you that a simple spray of florescent pink paint will make your batteries un-attractive to thieves.
Whilst the offenders are on your land looking for stolen batteries, what else are they looking at?
Are you leaving yourself vulnerable to further incidents?
We would encourage all subscribers to Property Mark your items. This can be as easy as post-coding items or using products like SelectaDNA or Smartwater which can be easily applied to smaller items which helps identify them, combined with clear signage- this will dissuade thieves.
