Really sucks mate, I think the most horrible thing is loosing the sense of security, happened to us once.. hopefully police can catch those criminals!
Maybe and no. They got fingerprints the first time but couldn't get any the second time.
Perhaps Paul could loan you Timber, he might frighten them off!
They need eating. It would teach them to be more security conscious.
It's apparently a fairly common modus operandi - the burglers come back a few weeks later to steal all the new stuff bought with the insurance money.
In what must qualify as a genuine miracle of the modern era, a friend whose new bike was stolen from his house in such circumstances got it back when the local
Crime Cash Converters actually checked it against a database of stolen bikes, and even more miraculously, the person who tried to sell it is now trying to avoid "assisting police with their enquiries".
Well all they stole the first time was two jars full of coins - minus the jars - so there wasn't much to be done on the replacement front. It'll take a few years to replace that many coins.
