What is SmartWater?
No two SmartWater solutions have the same forensic code meaning that marked items can be traced back to where they came from.
The solution is invisible under normal light, but glows brightly under UV light, making it easily identifiable by the police.
It also allows the police to link suspects with crime scenes.
A man from Tottenham has been charged following a Smartwater sting carried out by Brent Police on Monday.
Officers set up a trap car in the borough marked with the anti-theft liquid which was subsequently stolen.
Haifa Mokuba, 29, will appear before Hendon Magistrates Court today accused of theft.
