REDDING, Calif. —
Investigators with the Redding Police Department have been looking into multiple reports of vehicle windows supposedly marked with letters and numbers such as "2F" or "1F1B." Facebook posts alerting others suggests the markings are codes for possible sex trafficking.

Redding Police Sergeant Danny Semtak agreed the markings are strange. However, he went on to say there have been no reports of anyone assaulting, kidnapped, hurt, or anything in that nature following the writing on their windows.

The other report of a woman stating her windows were "marked" comes out of the Turtle Bay parking lot, which police are also investigating.

This could be nothing sinister. I think it is worth keeping an eye on. Because it could be sex trafficking, rape or some other sick stuff. It could be car thieves or even something totally innocent.

The police are trying to get surveillance video and figure out what is going on. They say as soon as they know anything, they will let us know.

As always, be aware of your surrounding at all times. Especially in places like parking lots.

At first I thought it meant "2 Females" and "1 Female 1 Beta", so basically the same thing.

It's a sick world, thank you for the heads up, I'll keep an eye out.

Is it always an '' F " or " B " no other letters ?

If so sex trafficking makes since or something sexual in nature , but if not it could be literally anything .

Are sex-traffickers vacant enough to use a coding/tagging system that a carwash would circumvent?

It would be a very temporary signal. Likely related to the parking lot. Someone marks the cars. Someone else sees it and waits for the occupant to return.

Females should always carry something for self defense...anything.
Even if it’s putting some type of instrument on your keychain for gouging eyeballs out at close quarters as a last resort.
A gun would be the best bet but that is not always possible.

If it comes down to it a key can do a lot of damage and gives you the advantage of surprise. You can always carry your key, ready to use, while walking to your car.

Yes a key would definitely work but I was thinking something like the old style bottle openers.
Sharp, curved tip and it could have a little bit longer length than a key and just jam that bitch right in their eye and twist.

But why, if it was a two-person operation, wouldn't the "marker" opt for communications that left no clues to the "marked" that they were being watched/stalked?

Everyone should be armed, and I have no problem saying that anyone abducting a child should be shot, several times.

I think by the time the victim might see the mark, it is too late to matter.

Lets say someone working there or a homeless person sleeping near is being paid a few bucks by some "gangs" to mark the vehicles.

Some group or gang may be working shifts and robbing people 24/7 or maybe something worst.

Someone could drive through and pick out the target vehicle/s then park and wait. I think they follow them by car and then strike elsewhere. That keeps the heat off their hunting grounds.

Of course this is all conjecture and it could just be a bored parking lot attendant.

So far, there have been no reported kidnappings, assaults, or similar crimes.

Hopefully it all amounts to nothing.

The female/boy thing makes little sense
Boy and female? Why not boy / girl or male / female?
They would go with b/g or m/f to designate genders...
The most obvious alternative is front/back, perhaps
marking passengers for carjacking or robbery..?

I was thinking along the same line. Maybe there is G and M also, could be being used and they are not reporting it or don't realize it yet.

Or of course you could be right.

I agree probably not boy that doesnt really make sense unles they used girl. B could be baby however so 1f 1b would be a female with a baby. And if this is true then yes women need to watch out.

I am thinking:

F=Female
M=Male
G=Girl (underage)
B=Boy (underage)

It's all just guessing without more facts.

Thousands of women and children have been rescued from Sex Traffickers this year and last. Maybe they are using a new system to gain replacements in some way.

I hope not.

The demand needs to be addressed somehow.

ETA- I bet if they turned the war on drugs into the war on sex traffickers, they would still confiscate as many drugs.

I couldn't read that without picturing you doing the motions and facial expressions to go with what you were writing


And - I agree!

The markings...I guess I'd want to know what more of the markings are, and where they occured, in krder to make any sort of reasonable guess about what they're for/about
