This morning I was getting going to get the wash stuff out, found the shed door open, padlock twisted off and the 'booby trap' (6 foot lenghts of 3" angle iron) had crashed down onto them and where now laying on the ground! After a quick check, found nothing had been taken. So they where either disturbed or didn't find my heap of old bike frames and tyres that appealing. Checked out the garage doors and the cars over there and all ok. Walking back towards the house thinking about what to do I check around the other cars we keep nearer the house and my heart sank. The side door of my van didn't look right! They have buggered the lock and the door around it, managed to open the latch and move it about 8mm. Luckily I don't rely on manufacturer locks for that type of thing and made my own system up inside. It has literally saved the day! They couldn't get the door open despite trying hard enough to pull the bottom runner out and leave lots of finger prints down the side! They failed. Would any one like to guess the response from the Police? No one can come out, they wont send anyone out to take fingerprints as they are on the outside of the vehicle. It turns out its perfectly fine to cause a grands worth of damage to a vehicle as long as you don't gain access!
