I do feel sorry for anyone having their gear nicked but shouldn't have said 100% sure and then not be right! Prob because they said they were 100% is why the riot van was there....

But nice to hear the police are following up leads like this.

Re: Call from the Police this afternoon

Don't tar the police with the same brush as we had two 190's pinched a few years ago, early hours of the morning all caught on cctv, hot wired a tarmac lorry chained the first one on drove out straight through the fence and back within 12 mins and had the second one. The lorry was found near the local gipsy camp, a few months later a police patrol in Porth in the Rhondda noticed a chipper in a front garden of a house, thought it was a bit odd did a few checks and we had it back, so the police were good in this case.

Re: Call from the Police this afternoon

I agree with the police chasing up leads however in this case I disagreed with the manner in which they conducted themselves! I offered them the opportunity to come to my family home to check the chipper and my paperwork!

I would understand if I had previous or was on a known travelling folk site but I am far from it !!

But yes I do feel sorry for them having one stolen
My number1 just made the comment that the model in question was in a line up and postive ID was confirmed.
