Stolen Defenders

Postby fv1620 » Fri Jan 22, 2010 4:51 pm

Below is a quote from Wiltshire Police Farm Watch bulletin.

Landrover Defender Thefts
We had a spate of Landrover Defender thefts back in October 2009 and at that time there were 8 stolen in one month. Then things went quiet again. There were two stolen in December and there have been three stolen thus far in January 2010. There is no pattern to the thefts and it is happening across the county. The Rural Crime Team are taking these on, and will be liaising with adjoining Forces to deal with the problem. Please ensure that you lock up your vehicles.
For all the focus is predominately on Landrover Defenders there have been thefts of other 4 x 4 vehicles too.

Seems simple - but a farmer near here had his nicked from the roadside while he was feeding sheep in the field next to it. Car stopped, 2 Neds jumped into the LR and sped off followed by the car. Rolled it and wrote the LR off a mile or two down the road :(
