Cry Like A Baby Broken into this morning

Got a call earlier this morning from the neighbors saying my back window has been smashed in on my van, went out to have a look and they stole 2 pressure washers

one of them is a beast of a thing, petrol, but was out of commission (ha!) worth around 200 or so quid, the other was an electric karcher, which is worth about the same

Went around the village looking out for any struggling with them, as the petrol one, although on wheels, the 'stoppers' are very low, and would be difficult to move, but didn't see anyone about apart from loads of paperboys, I so wanted to catch them god knows what i would of done if i did!

Looks like this expensive month is getting even more expensive

well look on the bright side, the Van is still there and the even more important, the Alfa!

Re: Broken into this morning

I, as a Human, can feel for you Snokes...

And it's not just the cost either - it's the fact that people (humans most likely) think it appropriate to get their hands on other people's (humans most likely) stuff.

Hang 'em high, I say.

Re: Broken into this morning

To add insult to injury the scroats who nicked 'em will probably be unable to sell them so they'll just end up dumped. Lots of hassle and not even the yobs will gain from it.

Not to worry, if they are caught they will be severely punished with a 50 hour community service order....

Re: Broken into this morning

I do not feel for us of course. :borg:

Do you know anybody in the village with their ear to the ground who might be able to point you in the right direction?

Re: Broken into this morning

Asked around, no one saw a thing

Called the police and they said they might get forensics on the case as i have not touched the handles or rear door! the women on the other end of the phone was really sympathetic, which i didn't expect, rear glass will cost me 110 supplied and fitted from a mate! so not bad going !

There has been a spat of crime near us recently, one guy has been caught, who was only just released from jail, and he back in the slammer

junkies

Sorry to hear this BroBot

Might be worth having a look around the usual dumping spots around your area in a day so.

maybe worth reminding your local bobby that they have a list of prolific offenders and depending on the criteria set for the "catch and convict" element they may have someone on the radar already. sometimes the systems don't work quite as well as they should so worth a prompt just in case.

Re: Broken into this morning

quick update, forensics found nothing

They showed us the technique they used to get in, which would of been silent, and the noise heard around 8am was more than likely the wind blowing against the damaged glass and then smashed on the ground

I so want to rig the back end of the van with tear gas or tasers or somink something tells me I have not heard the last of it!

Re: Broken into this morning

Been a lot of drive-in valet operations setting up on disused forecourts over the last 12 months or so, usually there for 6 weeks or so before the council or trading standards tell them to eff-off, then another week or so for them to find a translator to tell them to е***ь покинуть ПОЖАЛУЙСТА (и вы хотите хороший материал от государства, прежде чем отправляться в путь?)

That would be me first line of enquiry
