Modus operandi (often used in the abbreviated forms M.O. or simply Method) is a Latin phrase, approximately translated as "method of operating" The term is used in English to describe someone's habits or manner of working, the method of operating or functioning. It is often used in a criminal sense, to profile the methods employed by individuals during the execution of a crime, and may also be used in offender profiling,2 where it can also be used to find clues to the perpetrator's psychology.3 It largely consists of the methods used to execute the crime, prevent detection, and facilitate escape.

Not an urban term at all, but a legal one. Short for Modus Operandi (method of operation). One's either habitual or premeditated way of doing things.

M O is an abbreviation for Modus Operandi. which is Latin for Method of Operation or Mode of Operation

In criminal investigations, it refers to the criminal's methods whether murder or burglary or whatever as similar methods used in separate offences which could indicate the same person was responsible.

It doesn't have to pertain to crime. It can also be used to describe a person's 'trade mark' habits.
