S3 theft....




I can't believe, in this day and age, someone would just leave their doors open like this.

That's why I have an 8 stone Doberman on the warm side of my front door.

They looked as though they didn't even know how to flip the key out of the key fob, they struggled with it for a bit. Could be more to this than meets the eye.

Certainly is a poorly staged scam if it is one. The goons look, act and ARE stupid.

Why would the front door be open? What made them try the front door.

Most theifs would just nab the fucker and go trying to look casual.

That ain't genuine, they spend far too long getting in the house and inside the house. Also there would have been pleny of noise as they closed the door twice, how would they have known they weren't going to meet the owner or his dog.

Youtube scam ........

Yeah it was a bit like someone tried to open the door from the inside and the chav tried to hold it shut or something. If it's not a scam, they have some fucking nerve because if that was my house, the dogs would have had them in tatters.

I could not for the life of me, see any reference to a crowbar, or any other weapon. Unless if I am being extremely critical then there may have been something the second lad had in his left arm, going up from wrist to armpit?

Wow. If I felt the need for multiple CCTV cameras on my house I'd move no matter what.

...or lock the bleeding' door. I live in a very safe area but my doors are permanently locked whether we're in or not - just habit.
