Never mind you're not sure .... I haven't got an 'effing clue why it's awaiting approval .... It won't let me approve it and I don't even know why it's been flagged for 'approval'.   Stupid chuffing forum software...... Bad workman and all that  :)

Still  - excellent news on the recovery.   Will update our records accordingly :)

See comments, by the owner, just found on LandyZone a while back!


Smile Re: LandRover Defender 90 stolen TODAY from outside my house
THEY FOUND IT! THEY FOUND IT! THEY FOUND IT!

THANK YOU to all forum members who participated in posting details of the LR and helping with the search as well as sending good wishes.
My LandRover has been found in a ditch this morning near Causey Arch over the border in Gateshead Council area. The vehicle was discovered by Gateshead Council workmen who called their Council who in turn notified Northumbria Police where the LR flagged up as stolen; they in turn notified Co. Durham police who cover this Tyne and Wear area.
Community cop radioed in while here for further details as I asked about my stuff in the back etc. The policeman who attended and arranged recovery of the vehicle said there seemed to be a lot of stuff in the back; I'm hopeful that this means much of it is still there.
The recovery guys who pulled it out of the ditch said that it didn't appear to be unduly damaged but that the ignition wires were hanging out. It's now in a secure compound and will stay there till forensics have finished with it as they still want to know who stole it. They'll get in touch with me then.
I really believe that they never intended to abandon the vehicle but to strip it down and that the fact that I contacted anyone and everyone connected, and unconnected to Land Rovers but with motor trade knowledge etc., and that people like you guys went to the efforts you did is what has allowed it to be recovered. We said last night that it would go one of two ways - I'd visited strangers houses with Defenders parked outside and talked to them, driven around and checked yards, walked into pubs I'd never been in before and announced I was looking for it (I had what my OH refers to as "that face" on), dropped into community police stations en route where they put the number in their notebooks and called and posted all over the place - the two ways being they would panic and have it stripped and away in no time or it would become so uncomfortable for them they couldn't afford to hang onto it one second longer. I think that's what happened.

I'll keep you guys posted on what's recovered and what needs doing to it. They've said they'll let me know if they find out who took it, who knows, if they find them I might just take up some of those other offers I've received on holding the scrotes down or doing other unmentionable things to sensitive areas!

Particular thanks to Landyfox and Grip for the advice and assistance. Grip, hope to catch up with you and your mate sometime for an outdoors brew - would be very good to have a larger circle of LR owners known to me in the area.

Again, many thanks to all forum members for feedback, advice and assistance.

Just pays, I think now, to use every tool in the box to get your vehicle back. The police said they wouldn't follow the cctv, if it didn't ping the traffic cameras by reg no. then they wouldn't have a clue where to start. The LR didn't ping any cameras the whole time it was gone so they must have been on a back road or it was under cover sharpish, it's not the kind of vehicle you'd take for a joyride in broad daylight so I think they intended to stash it and break it, but holding onto it has hopefully proved too hot thanks to people like yourselves who're prepared to put in the effort. Thanks.

Won't put this on the Database just yet as it could be a possible duplication
I did think of that possibility at first too Jon, and even started to write that up in my post, but although they are both Green this one has a clear white stripe through the door handle the other doesn't?

And they both quote entirely different locations...  8)

Attempted Theft on Landrover Defender (TUE 27TH JAN 2015) (Currently up for sale) > Caught in the act by family member and startled when light turned on, dark coloured small car (corsa like) skinny bloke, one around 5`4 - 5`6, with a driver, bolted and ran when discovered. Attempted at just after midnight, Police informed... WV5 area Edit: Opened doors to vehicle (steering lock was fitted) ... Only had new doors and paint job a month.


Bar type Steering Lock fitted, broken but not fully removed!

EDIT:  Now I'm a bit confused... lol

Also seems to have been reported as Wordsley, Stourbridge, Staffs - although not 100% is the same truck?!?

So, will not change the details yet, but will try and confirm with the posters...  :o

Additional post by Luke Rowley...

Luke Rowley - Confirmed, Reported to South Staffs police - Crime reference number gotten - Attempted just after 12 - 12:10am - 2 (Presumably men) 5`4 - 5`6 the one was, obviously did a bit of surveillance prior, since he knew which path to take (across neighbours lawn) to avoid motion sensor light to go off (however it did) family member caught him, to which he went and ran to a dark coloured small car (corsa like) Police turned up and what i can gather while i was giving statement, they stopped several vehicles etc. They (the scum) couldnt start vehicle due to additional security, and the steering wheel lock bar was broken but held in place meaning they couldnt turn wheel.
