I had a phone call from Sussex police yesterday who were very keen to get the contact details on an Arbtalk user. They had managed to pull up his Arbtalk post in google where he reported some stolen equipment. When I spoke to the officer he told me they had hundreds of other items that they just couldn't find owners for. I am hopefully going to try and work with them in some way.


Theres a misconception that once kit dissappears thats it, its shipped off to a foreign land. Its not always the case though and every year tonnes of gear gets auctioned off simply because the police can't locate the owners.

 

I started Arbsafe around 6 years ago to help combat that problem. Its a 100% free service, you simply enter an inventory of ALL your gear in the system, and then in the case of it being stolen you can change its status to appear in the publicly searchable database of stolen equipment. I tired of promoting it a long time ago as people just can't be bothered to take the time to list their gear even though its completely free. Unfortunately systems such as this need mass to work, and whilst there are nearly 2000 bits of equipment listed its pretty small fry in the grand scheme of things. 

 

Anyway, waffling now. Please consider listing your chipper though, and anything else that you have!

If you need anyone closer to Sussex just ask Steve; the county's about 8 miles away at its closest point!

If your chipper was seen(difficult not to remember a pink one!) why was it ‘possibly Lutterworth’? and not more specific? It hasn’t actually gone that far then, same county?and they don’t care who sees it two days after theft( I presume it went missing just before your first post!) which is a strange action from thieves? do the police know it’s been seen? They might take a bigger interest if they could possibly get a result. If you can tie it down to an area/ specific road there must be cameras around that area. If you know where it was seen(actual road) take a trip there yourself and have a look for any private cameras or commercial premises and enquire if they may have captured any cctv, people can generally be very helpful? Good luck.
