Is it me? Since my Hymer was stolen in June,I have noticed van thefts on an almost daily basis-what's going on,it is becoming an epidemic?
I wonder what the Police are doing? I have read reports that the Irish Police (Garda) are investigating a gang who are using UK based gangs to steal High end Vehicles and motorhomes. So where are they going?

What happens to them ?
How do the thieving B@stards get any return ?
Who buys such stolen vehicles ?
Do the police know what happens ?

Etc etc !

Gutting, hope they get it back ok, but its probably gone for good. Phil it must be making you a bit nervous being so close to home, I know it would me.

This is the first non-Ford Transit based van I've seen nicked in a while. Very worrying as I have a VW.

Hope they get it back - although I'm not sure whether I would want it back? Depends how much it has been damaged, I suppose.

We've seen lots of Transits nicked but first VW I have seen. Any ideas Admin as to what security was on the van?

Thieving scum bags.

Hate to read about these things.
Hope it comes back soon.

Lots of landrover defenders going missing also the new shape transits and customs are too so it's not just the older transits. the defender from 2011 has the 2.2 transit engine fitted

Hope it turns up soon

had my van stolen early November from my disabled bay outside my house at 6.30 am . As luck would have it I was up and about when I saw the van going past the window . I was on the phone to the police within 1 minute and 15 minutes later they called me back to say they had found it . The scum who stole it didn't realise that was the time the police change shifts :lol-053: .I was picked up and taken to collect my van by the police . well done lads but unfortunately the scum got away .

Its not just the newer van's that are stolen,as an owner of an older vw,the scum bags often nick these as parts are becoming rare & the vans are often cut up for the body panels.
