Was the VIN number still visible Adrian?
Took a wander round the usual areas of Gorrick Plantation nr Wokingham....

No signs of recent activity.

Tho i did come across some one else's pride and joy
Wtf!! Another one!!  That's not far from me - and i recognise the landy.

I will take a wander down Gorrick Woods right now.

One went from the Mad Stad week before. White van and two people seen.

Seems to have started up again. I know the police keep an eye on Landywatch - certainly if directed here for info.

Wont be same one who nicked mine! - I currently have his ringer 90 and am taking off the stolen parts off my 90....

Persistance pays off.  Eyes open everyone.

Rgds...  and seething!

You think they would have given up earlier. Glad you still have it and they were caught. It the sentencing and Judges that let us down, they will probably only get community service! Vehicle theft should get prison.

I inspected the damage in daylight today.

It was a proper botched job!

They tried to go in via the front door seal to get access to the central locking harness to open the doors. Failed. So had a go at the drivers door lock with a screwdriver. Failed. Stripped the lower three door bolts out. Top door bolts had metal epoxy in so they dug at it with a screwdriver to get the epoxy out but couldn't. Failed. They did manage to open the OSF door. Paint damage to front eyebrow, wing, and bulkhead.

Tried to break the steering lock with a long metal pipe and couldn't as the steering wheel had sheer bolts holding the metal splines to the plastic casing. Therefore the wheel fell off leaving a metal collar and the retaining bolt. Failed. Damage to upper and lower steering cowels. Steering lock hacked at but couldnt break it. Failed. Ignition barrel broken and removed. Whole steering column and switches rotated through 90 degrees so the stalks were north south not east west. But was undriveable. Failed.

It would appear they then realised they weren't going to be able to steal it complete so set about stripping it. Cut the wiring loom to both doors unfortunately on the main loom side so it will need a whole new main loom. Drivers seat removed but appears intact. Wheel bolts removed but wheels still intact. No property lost other than a few bolts. And Failed.

Then the idiots jump over a 4 foot spiked iron railing and falls 20 feet breaking his leg in two places. The other two run off and leave him there screaming.

Then he gets arrested.

Then the vehicle they bought for travelling to thefts, with my drivers seat in, gets seized complete with a full set of documents in the glove box. The idiot has the key to this on him but denies it's his vehicle and grasses his mate who ran off and left him who is arrested later that morning.

Accused found with various bits of property on him from the vehicle. Also his property found at the scene.

And this is just the evidence I know about, the Police, quite understandably, wouldn't tell me any of their evidence.

You couldn't make this stuff up!

Sorry to hear mate, gutted for you. :(
I haven't seen anything on my look around, but hopefully they are checking ANPR cameras, etc. I'll keep a look out for it.
