Hi Lads & Lasses, A member of Another Forum I'm also on has had his gear Nicked from his van at home (West Midlands) Please give us a heads up if you hear of any of the gear.

Here's the gear list below.

Thanks Martin.

 

 

I opened the front door this morning to go fishing and couldn't understand why my Skeetex boots and side tray were scattered over the drive, it soon dawned on me when I noticed the back door of the van was slightly ajar. Gutted to see all the high end quality items were missing leaving the Octbox (no jokes please).

So guys I guess these items will soon be up for sale.

Daiwa 16m TPX
Tricast 8' xrs power carp x 2
Shimano 9/11 feeder (original)
Daiwa 11' pellet wag

All rods fitted with Daiwa 2503CU reels (so gutted)

Tricast 4m landing net handle.

Preston Monster flat carryall full of accessories.

As for West Midlands Police - complete an on-line incident report and wait up to two days for a follow up on enquiries......Um not impressed. No wonder this sort of crime is rife right now.

Lucky for me I've insurance for tackle in van and hopefully the claim will go through next month. However, honestly I'd rather have my irreplaceable rods and reels that have taken me years to collect than replace them with similar rods and reels......just not the same.

Please - Keep your eyes and ears open for any news of tackle for sale, and let me know.

Looks like this matter is over already - Indicative of the Times!! This is what he says below.

Cheers guys for all your sympathy messages - there'll not catch the scum bags cos the incident has been closed all ready via email without a telephone call or site visit - since they closed our village police office 18 months ago crime around here has quadrupled, I can't recall seeing a patrol car in ages. 

I've enough tackle to be up and running immediately so not a total catastrophe - but really gutted to have lost the items that I mainly purchased via TA.

I'll be looking out to purchase a Tricast 8' xrs power carp plus any 2503CU Daiwa Reels (becoming rare now).

The Police, along with an Armed Response vehicle would have been there within 3 minutes had the guy caught the scumbag/s Red Handed & he was stood on his throat.!!!!!!   :busted_cop:

Can't help with the gear but your mate can look out for his stuff on ebay by using he "Cheap Bargains" link above to narrow the search to sellers within say 20 miles of the house.

 

As for the police, the lack of action is unsurprising but thank goodness they can still at least afford to spend millions of pounds a year patrolling social media looking for the thought criminals who say mean things about terrorists and child rapists on Twatter and Facetube.

:fishing1: A few years ago while I was in a tackle shop on a hot, sunny Saturday some scumbag pulled the electric window on my car down in broad daylight and took my wallet out of my jacket on the front seat. I drove straight to the local police station and reported it. A civilian manning the front desk gave me a crime number for my insurance company. No I said, it's a hot day and they won't of had gloves on so there will be fingerprints on the window. Sorry, CID don't work weekends was her reply. On the Tuesday I received a letter from the Chief Constable of Hampshire apologising for me being a victim of crime on his patch and the crime had now been fully investigated and was now closed. Crime on Saturday, letter posted Monday, CID don't work weekends, so how long does it take to "fully investigate" a crime in Hampshire?  :fishing1:

Seems it was better when the "Clip Round The Ear 'ole" Coppers  were very much more effective back in the day!!
