Default attempted car theft

Hi guys
Just had the next door neighbour ask me if i heard anything last night as his 06 kia sorento had its lock broke last night someone tried to take it i did hear something but when i looked out i could see a car across the road but thought nothing of it.I checked my own but no sign of any damage,i guess they were looking for a 4x4 for doing a job We live at the end of a cul de sac and i suppose you never think anyone would try such a thing

Little shit bags out there mind...think I might set up a ''saw'' style shotgun trap in mine the latest method is to bend the top of the door, unlock it from inside...happened to my mates mother, they caught the fuckers in the act. But legged it before they could catch them.

So was it just the door lock they fucked?

Can't have anything safe these days.

Parents garage was done a while back, all the flood lights had been twisted pointing up to the sky, window had been removed from side of garage, they used clothes line prop to spring the door lock from inside then did away with loads of tools. They left some tools in the shrubs at the side of the drive so they had planned on returning because they were hidden not abandoned.

Now door is locked to floor, flood lights are fixed and can't be moved plus all were replaced with ones that chime an interior alarm and window is covered with a grill. Plus a few other surprises for anyone stupid enough to try it again.

This is why I do not shell out on a decent motor. I would be miffed but not gutted if some spotty, greasy pleb damaged/nicked my 307 shed.

I can happily leave the car all day in a car park - not worrying whether its been pranged.

I would have thought that nowadays you need the keys if you want to drive off in someone elses wheels.

My 206 was broken into last year in Reading, after attending reading festival.

In fact, there was 10 cars all in a row that got done. Mine being the first had the passenger door bent at the top and a smashed window. The rest just had there windows smashed.

I'm assuming they where trying to be clever by bending the door, which caused the windows to smash and then thought "Why don't we just smash the windows in the first place"?

stupid criminals...

i dont think i would be able to take responsibility for my actions if i catch anyone tampering with my motor... not too bad in my area...everyone knows everyone and their business.

i find out who it was, where they live...they wake up under a 12 tonne double decker in there house!
