The next morning, she was surprised when some neighbours approached them and told them of the green sticker on their mailbox. They even warned the family to stay vigilant.
They believed that the man and woman on the motorcycle mentioned prior were the ones who stuck it to their house.
Following this incident, they went on surveying the nearby houses and similarly, the found the same stickers on some of the houses.
In the comment section, some said it could be ‘markings’ made by burglars who are scouting the area for potential victims.
