    Saw on FB last night that the LRO silver Defender 110 with LRO signwriting has been a victim of theft. It’s had it’s LED lights, light bar, bumper and some other parts stolen whilst parked in a car park. They also broke in, presumably to try and get the doors off but the security hinges did their bit.

    And the text from face book asking for help to find the list of stuff nicked.

    LRO said:

    'B******s. Went to pick up the LRO Defender earlier to find it like this. All of the Wipac smoked LED lights, Wipac headlights, headlight leveling units, ORE steering guard plate (but not the side brackets...), Lazer Lamps Linear-18 Elite light bar, DRL bumper and Britpart grille and surrounds have been taken. The thieves also smashed the rear window, then one of the sides to gain access, rifling through the interior. If there is a bright side, they were after the doors, but the anti-theft bolts stopped them from getting them. Secure your motors people - and if you're offered any of our stuff, let us know...'

    This one was done just over the border near Evesham. Doors and bonnet taken. It’s getting very common now.

    Looking at the LRO Defender, they’ve cut the grille panel too!:eek:

    These thieves seem to swagger around the country taking what they want.

    Can’t suggest a solution. Would love to know where all these doors bonnets and parts disappear to.

    l tried online and couldn’t find any for sale anywhere so they must be either going abroad or being fitted to vehicles by thieves.

    Maybe they buy the stripped vehicles from auction and rebuild them with stolen parts lol

    Just searched on ebay for 'defender doors' and a big list appeared. Ticked the box for 'used' and there's 258 results. Over 30 are doors.

    I don’t do FB. Did it say where it was parked and for how long. Any CCTV etc?
    Would be nice to put another one there as a sting op, and then sit on it and wait to see if the thieving b.....ds do come back.
    On what joy that would bring
