Noticed a couple of potential car thiefs last night

21 replies
Found 2nd May 2011
The neighbour has a car that is parked in the alleyway between the two houses (2 semi's). I was woken up when I heard some noise early in the morning, after looking through the blinds I saw two chavs walking away from our houses. So I am assuming they were trying to take the car but failed (fairly new car, good security), opportunistic thieves maybe? Anyway thanks to them I was a bit shaken and decided to check all the rooms in the house and left a couple of lights on through the night.

Am pretty certain they were more like car thieves than burglars, do you think they will return tonight?

No.

no they wont be back tonight..... maybe in a week or 2...

You should of called the Police if you thought they were up to no good... by not ringing the police you have allowed them to stay on the streets for a night, hence enabling them to prevent crime.

How are the Police ever able to retroactively monitor areas if people don't report things...

Probably sent one of the patrol cars that were out and about to just drive around the area for a bit.

They will be back alright, back tonight armed with car breaking - in equipment and ermmm..house breaking - in equipment,

be scared , be very scared.........oh.and errrrrm.dont let them see you watching from behind those blinds!

Chances are they were looking at using the neighbours car as a get away vehicle for a home invasion.

perhaps they were just checking whether everything was shut & locked up ok, Neighbourhood Chav Watch !

rose tinted glasses.

Have you ever called the police? I'm guessing not.

doubt they'd return.

If they couldn't get in it once, they would probably just move on to someone else.

Depends where you are. Police round here were great when we had a disturbance last month. They sent someone out then gave us a courtesy call. They also followed up to give us a update last week, I was really impressed with them and they have helped our faith in the police force.

Is this a joke?
Jesus wept I hope so.

Was that disturbance 2 guys walking away from a car or was there an actual crime?

Was action taken against the people involved or did they just call to tell you everything was alright?

They keep in touch because paperwork has to be filled in for everything and had the OP called they'd have spent more time questioning him than what they would have looking for the 2 men.

Find, store your local Police non emergency phone number and use it, simples.

Do car thieves walk differently?

depends on what they were carrying, but first of all, they could of caught them before a possible theft of someone elses car i.e yours.

if they are carrying tools or a "burglar kit" then they could be done for coming equipped.

plus a police presence is always good?...

LOL, The bill has a lot to answer for.
