1 Hour Ago
I remember maybe 14 years ago my mate had his van stolen (with some of my tools in it:mad2:) Reported it to the police and they found it a few days later. Luckily one of the coppers tipped us off as to where it was and told my mate to get down there sharpish before they could recover it to save the recovery cost. Thing is it was parked outside a large block of flats in a locked compound, we had to go off road and down a bloody steep embankment to get the thing out! fairly sure the thives lived in the block of flats as you can't get access to the car park without a key fob, sadly couldn't really go knocking on 60 odd doors interrogating everyone. Lost a couple of valuable bits but luckily most of the tools were on site when it got nicked. Scum of the earth!
in fact here's the bank we had to drive down and it's steeper than it looks!
Comes to somthing when you have to steal your own van back! but at least he got it back.
