Had mine pinched a couple of years ago, its happening all over the region but never seen anybody caught and punished yet.

Police are a joke but get caught over the speed limit by 1 mile per hour, park in the wrong place and they are pretty good, remember that old song, money talks!

The 4x4 in Greenmeadow garage belongs to a very good mate of mine, his spend is already into 4 figures ( the fault of Ford. not the garage who are doing an excellent job). The lowlife who did this in my opinion needs his thieving hands chopping off. Probably cane across from the valley .........

Do you expect the police to sit outside everywhere that reports a crime just in case something happens again? How many cops do you think there are ????????

Absolutely agree, way too many have no concept of the real world. How many police do people think we actually have that they can prevent and/or solve every crime? these sorts of "petty" crimes very rarely get solved, no evidence usually and you are hardly likely to get scrap dealers reporting dodgy sellers, they would lose a major part of their income if they were 100% legit!

Get real!
