In the Orhaniye neighborhood of Marmaris district, Muğla province, money,
jewelry and quite a few electronic goods have been stolen from ten homes
that were broken into. The police noticed that all of the homes where the
robberies took place had egg stains on their windows and balconies. It
appears that the thieves first throw eggs at the homes' balconies and
windows. The next day, if the egg stains have not been cleaned up, the
robbers enter the homes and steal whatever is valuable.
The police have begun efforts in the area to capture the thieves. One of the
victims, Binnur Demirkan, wants security measures in the neighborhood
increased. She said 'we had gone to Akyaka town and when we returned
we saw that a thief had entered our home. There were egg stains on the
balcony and the windows. At first we didn't understand what had happened.
We didn't think that this had anything to do with the robbery.'
