    Police woke me up this morning oh no not again :o(

    got a call early this morning telling m to go and view the "damage" to my car,went rushing down to the mg and couldnt see a thing,turned round and shock horror its the probe theyve done this time

    Rung the police back but theyre not really interested,got the police coming out later today to take another statement about the vandalism on the mg so will speak to them about todays incident too,I'm so sick of this place,theyre not sending scenes of crime this time,hows best to get this lot off?

    If I could move I could but it just isnt possible,I've asked the mp to help and he sent police round to speak to me about the car crimes but nothing came of that,I think cctv would be the best way foward but then they say they havent got the funding :o(

    What about giving Tony Martin a Phone?

    Haven't heard he's had any problems with scum recently

    what did you do to deserve that?

    OMG some sick barstewards about, you would of thought all you been through its about time the police pulled their fingers out!

    Do you know who it is but cant get evidence against them? Or is it still a mystery who it is.

    Bless ya hope this is all sorted out very soon

    Hmmm. Looks like someone doesn't like you!

    have you thought about investing in your own PC based cctv? Doesn't cost too much - and if nothing else, acts as a deterrant.

    My car got done on Wednesday night. Came down in the morning, unlocked and thought - hmm - why is the glove compartment open and stuff all over the passenger seat. Still not realising - put the key in the ignition, only to hear glass drop down from the quarter window in the back. Car has deadlocks, so they had busted that window, wound down the main window and got in that way.

    Strangely, they obviously didnt notice the radio was actually a DVD player - and they had a target! Sat Nav. I leave the suction holder permanently on the windscreen - but never leave the Sat Nav itself in the car. Needless to say - lesson learnt - and no longer visible!

    I've a good feeling i know who it is a 13 year old kid but i just cant get the evidence to nail him,although when my mg had its soft top ripped off they threw beer cans and tipped beer inside the car,one of those cans was tested and they have the dna match,theyre coming out today to speak with me about it

    what is the point? That's not even funny. You should install some CCTV if ur not planning on moving soon

    Also, make sure to clean the 'ring' that is left on the windscreen!

    I'd suggest your own CCTV Mardy, hook it up to your PC and when browsing HUKD, you can have a little window open on your screen so you can see your car at all times!
    Hope you manage to get something sorted :thumbsup:

    Agreed. Wise advice. I've heard of people getting their cars done because of that tell tell ring!

    lololol
    at least i can laugh now,i ruddy cried when the police rung me and woke me up!

    is there no neighbours near the parking area that could run a live cam from their home and buy the camera between yourselves like a neighbourhood watch scheme our car parking is like this and i have had 3 cars damaged .but dont have any probs now.

    It's very sad that things like this happen, I'm lucky with the fact I get to park my car on my drive and never had it broke into. However the area I live in does have a problem with vandalism and my neighbours have had problems in the past.

    My Mum's car is park in a private car park and she's had it broke into twice and tyres slashed 3 times now, She wants a garage but theirs a very long waiting list. Theirs newer cars parked in the same car park and they never seem to have any problems. Seems my mums cars targeted because it's a bit of a banger, But gets her from A-B etc..

    Most likely kids.

    You could have left a spotless car with no incentives to break in; it makes no difference to them, If they smash into your car and find nothing they move to the next. I am losing count the number of window excess' I have to fork out for.

    True - but they are more likely to target a car that looks a more likely candidate than one that isn't.

    I actually bought a CCTV setup to use a while back, but never got round to fixing it.

    Hi

    Contact your local councillor, contact the head of your local council.
    Invest in your own CCTV system, they are not expensive, remember to erect a sign saying you have cctv, as to cover your own back.

    If anyone above fails to help, contact your local papers etc... my guess some local security firm looking for a bit of publicity will step in to offer assitance.:thumbsup:

    What was the damage?

    Try washing it off with normal car shampoo and get some "T-Cut" and rub that in and see if it rubs off? Do it to a small area first.

    Why would they do it?

    why? something to do i suppose,hubby has decided he is going to sleep in the jeep to keep watch for a few nights,it will be ruddy freezing lol

    looks like scenes of crime are coming out now as theyve just phoned and told me not to touch the car and someone will be in touch shortly

    Are they racial words? Or the normal scut etc ?

    Surely this is happening too much to be random attacks. Seems targeted to me. Especially in this case, with maybe specific words. How many incidents have there been to other peoples vehicles in the street? Maybe one of your neighbours annoyed with you taking up 3 (or more) parking spaces? Have you had any sort of altercation between anyone? Could it be racial attacks (if applicable)?

    If you can do this Mardyass my dad has a top of the range CCTV system with its own monitor, 24 hour colour recording etc etc that my ex's grandparents used after suffering the same sort of thing for years. If I remember rightly you are not that far from me and if so I can deliver it to you next week

    i think its down to one little yob and his gang who run riot across the estate,within a year ive had my other car jumped on bending the brackets,broken into,the soft top ripped off it,beer poured inside it,aeriels snapped off,tyres let down,cream cakes smothered across the windows,silly string covering the car,the side of my house spray painted with graffiti tags and now this and the police dont think its linked?!
    my husband isnt white,we have fallen victim to racial abuse in the past although none of this seems racially motivated but i feel it is all stemming from the same person/s
