Time to start chopping fingers off the little scrotes.
Normally your area is quite a low crime area isn't it?

Time to bring back hard labour

I think the birch would make a better bet..

I agree wholeheartedly; the birch would definitely put off a few of the scum.

Sorry to have to report in the early hours of Tuesday in the wee small hours was just turning off my PC having watched a Rock Concert, was then aware of a torchlight in my hallway and a darkened figure, I bellowed what the Bllody Hells gong on only to get up on my dodgy pins in time to see a figure dissapear like a stabbed rat up a sewer pipe, ony had boxer shorts on so stopped short at the back gate, no street lights but hobbled back into my bungalow after realising 3 bikes had been stolen, put some clothes on and went out front , nothing.

the Police arrived very soon after and had at least found my Cagiva Raptor, at the end of the road, they kindly went off to collect it for me, whilst I looked for the reg on my Aprilia Atlantic also taken.

Then found most of my keys and an ipad had also gone, including my van ones(not long since I paid out 130 quid for a new Renault Key Fob, no bayonet)

The also had my little 110 cc pit bike but of course thats offroad so I will argue with Saga if they say it can be insured elsewhere as they did with the outboards also taken from the conservatory too.

Suffice to say after a walk around a park play area behind my Bungalow, thet I could have encountered what I belielieve was more than just one ner do well, suffice to say no sleep especially as the Police wanted to call and take via a CSI Officer, he found nothing then in the early evening two detectives, one who covered my previous thefts, Shineray Pit Bike, Sachs Madass, 2.5 and 3.5 Mercury outboards

I did sleep quite well last night as there are bolts on both front and damaged back door handle, doors, which I hadnt bothered with before, I had been asked by actually one was uniform the officer would I be prepared to give evidence in court, right on and if he she they were to get orf @ least I would then know whom they are, just saying
Anyways if anyone gets offered or sees Aprilia, (Piagio 500 parts), please let me know or even the whole scooter, thanks Gavin.

Thanks folks went over to Great Bentley this evening having copied a picture of the Scoot and the taking of,and as my Cagiva is back here but no keys for it, took my old Viva and stuck the details if seen on the screen,  one guy told me his son in law had a Honda stolen from this very road, and set fire to, well of course I hope similar wont happen to the Aprilia just the takers of said!

Thanks Scooterpuff, SNR, I am due a visit from a crime prevention Police Officer, a mate met at GT B, had some spare alarm thinghies, he bought two so will see how they go, but presumably you have muchos experience in that field so great if you can spare some time, many thanks in advance, GAv

Time to start electrifying the perimeter. Ever thought of a cattle fence? You can buy them on Ebay quite cheaply either car battery powered or mains transformers. Run the wire around the inside top edge of all your fences and in a ring around your bikes. I'm sure you can step up the amperage a bit too if you tweak them. 240VAC Live to your house door handles.
Barbed wire and broken glass or bird spikes!
