This is important; breaking in to the house for the keys was usually about expensive, well-immobilised vehicles. If, as we use more security devices, scallys start to realise that it's easier to burgle the house to get the LR, then we should be much more careful about where we put the keys - not on the hall table, or in a kitchen drawer, or in a bowl near the door. Bear in mind, we all have two sets of keys for the vehicle - and the spares are probably all in one place, for all the vehicles in the house. (I haven't got a warehouse full of exotic cars, but you know what I mean). So, even if you block one car in with another - it's easy-peasey
So, even if you've put the Disklok, Pedal lock, wheel clamp on, as well as the immobiliser and extra alarm - they can all be dealt with by simply nicking the keys!
So, even in the house, you have to either hide them well (what a pain to go and get them every time you go out), store them in a safe (ditto), have dummies in the obvious place (that will slow them down a bit) or some other strategy.
... answers on a postcard, please

I've started a separate thread in the Security info and advice section for discussion on Sparg's very valid points.  If anyone has anything to add on the home security/securing your keys topic,  can you post it over there and not here so we can keep this thread clean for the specific Disco theft, ta :)

Nicolas - so sorry to hear of this.   I hope for your friend, that they have some success in finding the vehicle.

Nicolas, without wanting to upset your friend any more than they are already..... do you know, or could you ask them if the house was burgled specifically for the Disco keys, or did they pinch other stuff in the house as well as the keys ?  - Don't worry if not.... I don't want to upset them any further.

It appears the disco keys were targeted, they also took spare keys to her partners car, so that has been dealt with. Apparently Durham police have managed to get some photos of the vehicle and a reasonable picture of the passenger, but as time goes by I am pretty sure it will have been dismantled by now.

Presumably then the fuel thief has been apprehended and that led to the discovery (no pun) that the registration and VIN didn't match ?      X823WJR is the correct index for a green Disco.

Okidoke, so it was the driver/passenger identity then that gave the game away?   Otherwise, it's just a Green disco on an X plate driving off without paying.
