Stolen Wipers

Some thieving scumbag decided to help themselves to both my front wipers last night. I've sourced a replacement pair on-line and hope to have them in a couple of days. Is there a way to secure them or at least make them a little harder to remove? I assume they targeted my car specifically as they look like they only fit Alfa's. I don't see many Brera's around so I'm hoping this doesn't turn into a free-for-all for whoever needs a spare Brera part.

The connections for the wipers look different to other wipers I've been used to. There is a small tab that fits into the blade so it can't fit on every car. Can I secure them with some cable ties? Has anyone else done something to deter thieves? It won't stop thenm but may make it more difficult for them to remove them. It does pose the question as to whether they will just damage the wiper arms and I'll be left with a bigger bill but I really don't know what to do. The last thing I want is to put my new blades on only for these to be stolen in a week or so.
