Well, hope it's not as you say.
I've heard of this sort of thing before, but can't see how it makes sense. Is there really some kind of confederacy of burglars and burglar helper folk? I could be wrong but as I say..
A few weeks back I found a couple of peppers and an aubergine had been furtively snuck in the top of our flower basket. No burglaries so far, so suspect we just have rather fruity neighbours.
As long as you don't end up with an upside down pineapple. If you know you know
