    cover one’s tracks

    Dear teachers,

    Would you tell me whether I am right with my interpretation of the expression in bold in the following sentence?

    Bit even we miss things occasionally when a thief has covered his tracks well. (Halley’s “The Moneychangers”)

    cover one’s tracks = conceal, obliterate the evidence

    Thank you for your efforts.
