From "Paris Insider's Guide," a free and mediocre print publication: Burglars Codes (pdf). "Burglars often stake out houses and flats before breaking and entering. They leave chalk marks next to the entrance to the building. Learn how to interpret these and don’t forget to wipe them off... Courtesy of Neuilly-sur-Seine Police station." If you were a burglar, why would you share this information? Maybe there's a socialist burglar collective. See also hobo signs.
