    This Defender was stolen yesterday from Derbyshire Bridge Car Park. This one is very distinctive and was showing DC15 BFN as the registration.

    Sorry to hear about this. I saw it on several FB pages in the last 24 hours, including Cheshire police’s page. Hope it is returned safely and those responsible are caught.

    Hi chaps, its not mine, but I thought I'd make us guys on the forum aware, just if there's any chance of getting it back for the owner

    Let the OP explain his way out of that one. Though it's not unknown for DVLA to print/enter an error.

    I have come across various "stolen" posts in other owner's club groups - invariably turns out to be a bogus posting. DVLA listing never correlates.

    Not a scooby! Not my vehicle, it was taken from a Facebook post and as I have an interest in Land Rovers just wanted to help the owner get it back.

    Fully understood - but from my experience these "stolen car / bike" Facebook posts are invariably bogus.

    I don't know about that site and I don't ever access Facebook but what I have found is that every time someone posts about a missing car or bike and I check on DVLA's site, it is always bogus. Worth checking DVLA before spreading the story.

    I think this one way legit, it was a work colleagues friend who had it nicked, but as for the discrepancies, I dunno

    Stolen from a car park, so parked illegally...? Nah, it's a bogus posting.

    Why would someone post a false "stolen Land Rover" message, doesn't make any sense.
    l mean, what would they gain from it?

    Not SORN or that would show on the DVLA listing.
    Seems to have done around 7k miles while untaxed.
    Can't answer that, all I know is that I have seen a number of these "my car / bike has been stolen" postings: invariably a quick DVLA check shows anomalies.
