Police meeting over player burglaries after Casemiro & Partey incidents

The growing wave of robberies at the homes of football players during matches has put the heads of Spain's police on high alert and they are taking action.
Security officials from Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid have been summoned this week for a meeting in which steps will be taken to try to avoid new thefts.
The areas of La Moraleja, Mirasierra and Majadahonda have been marked in red, but there are also other hot spots where there will be special surveillance due to the activity of thieves.
Real Madrid have already started using a surveillance vehicle during matches, but the areas to be covered are too extensive for the presence of one car to drive away the thieves.
Although Barcelona players like Gerard Pique, Jordi Alba and Kevin Prince Boateng have also suffered robberies, as well as some others in other parts of Spain, there have been more cases in Madrid.
Rafael Varane, Marco Asensio, Lucas Vazquez, Casemiro, Alvaro Morata, Thomas Partey, Karim Benzema and even Zinedine Zidane have been targeted, although in the case of the Real Madrid coach it was only attempted.
According to police sources, players must take a step forward in terms of private security, since it has been proven that in one of the homes there was hardly any deterrent to keep thieves away.
Players are also being asked to stop sharing photos of their belongings or the interiors of their homes and to stop sharing information on their trips away from their houses.

Considering the way they use social media, avoiding leaving a trace of their steps is a complicated ask.
