Foiled tracker theft

Hi guys,
I think you will all be interested in the following.......
Last night at around 2030hr my wife spotted someone walking out from our drive. When I checked back on cctv it became clear he was a thief eyeing up my Disco and leaving us a little present on the chassis!!
I'll try and upload the videos and you can let me know your thoughts.

Not sure but you might have to post the vid to YouTube then link to it.

I'd go stick that tracker on an unmarked Police vehicle (with their permission of course) and wait for them to show up Smile

Glad you folied them but be vigilant as they still found your car in the first place

No idea on the video things but I'm surprised that vehicles the age and value of ours are desirable enough to warrant such activity. As much as we love them they're not exactly rare and appreciating in value!

It might be an idea to stick a tracker of your own on incase they manage to steal it.

You are of course presuming it's the car they are after rather than who/what it contains. Whistle

Sounds like a plot for TAKEN D3 the movie

Could see Liam as the leading role driving a Disco, posting updates on a forum about what he's fixed on his beloved Landrover and then....Its missing

You're not having an affair, or you other half suspects you of having an affair

She might have instructed a PI to keep tabs on you

or a Government body keeping tabs on you

I strongly suspect it's a key code grabber or similar rather than a tracker.
Why would they need to track where you go, they know where you live and presumably where you park your car at night? Rolling Eyes
