Re: Sat Nav stolen from my drive.

The sentence was postponed till April 4.

He "should" get a few years.

here's a link to some of his previous work. With such a distictive surname, google works a treat.
http://www.walesonline.co.uk/news/wa...e-drop-2217835

He got 4 years that time.

His name brings plenty of search results. He's one of those prolific offenders where it would totally benefit the comunity to keep locked up indefinitley.

Re: Sat Nav stolen from my drive.

Not the sharpest knife in the drawer, then. Pity it costs so much taxpayers' money to keep the likes of him in chokey, and out of mischief. With previous like that, he's going down big-time this time - and all for a sat-nav. Stupid or what?

Re: Sat Nav stolen from my drive.

The results are in, the votes have been counted and verified,

4 years inside!

That'll do for now. I'm sure another crime spree will follow once he gets out though.

Thanks for posting the update.

Hopefully this will serve as a deterrent to other would-be thieving scumbags.

It shouldn't be hard to design an 'anti-theft' function into a satnav which will silently 'phone home with its location if it's removed from a vehicle - most of the necessary technology is already built into the unit.

Placed in plain view in an unlocked car, such a unit would make an excellent honeypot trap which could potentially lead the police to an Alladin's cave of stolen treasure.

Re: Sat Nav stolen from my drive.

That would be the icing on the cake, following a car to asda for instance, waiting till they get out and approaching saying give me back my tomtom!

A similar thing happened to my friend. His 1200 mountain bike was stolen. He put out the feelers to find out who took it, managed to narrow it down and then arrange a meet with the thief to buy it back for 400.

The guy had a big shock when my mate and his brother showed up with no money!
