    Morning all, just to let you know, a couple of thieves were caught by my neighbour last night, trying to break into my series 3, she was woken by her ring doorbell which got a decent picture of them, both got caught by the police a short while after.

    Was there any extra security on the landy that slowed down the thieves?

    Good to know they were caught. We need to post the crooks names to make 'em infamous.

    Catching the b.....ds & thereby preventing the theft as a result is great news.

    Not got any extra security on the Landy, I'm looking at getting some now though.

    With yhe ring doorbell viewer things, stick a little perspex box with holes in it over them like at the bank counter, they can be stolen otherwise (ripped out of wall) and they ain't cheap

    Unfortunately what I've seen in UK is that people get away with pretty much everything BUT road tax, insurance and council tax.
    We had two cars arson and were amazed how police did not pose any interest, just gave a crime number and that was it. We had cctv footage etc, didn't matter.
    Also we had a burglary in office. We had cctv, fingerprints. They were found, but no arrest made. Plenty of these examples. To make it on topic, it is extremely rare for a stolen care to appear, I would say at least 50% are tay tay.
    I think crime rate in European Union is about to drop in October.

    In London 1 in every 12 motorcycles are stolen, meaning that if you live there you have a 1 in 12 chance of your bike being nicked.

    That’s not theft, it’s an epidemic. Like Land Rover thefts, but someone show me what’s being done about it.

    I if only they knew that stealing or attempting to steal a Land Rover is not only un-cool/ bad karma and will make their p*n*s's shrink by 3
    inches, but even if the cops don't get them.. they will go to Hell and have to drive a Jeep :eek:
