Default Bastards stole my Range Rover

But I tracked it down with Lojack ----- unfortunately they hit my kids car and destroyed some landscaping on the way out of my driveway ....

Now I have to wait for processing with the PD and then get all the repairs done .... What a pain in the ass....

Stolen at 12:45am and I found it at 11am ... looks like they drove it straight there after leaving my house ..

Here it is in the hood when I found it ...

Lock your doors guys ... Never know when its your turn

Was the fob in it ? Seems like the modern tech doesn't allow vehicle to start without fob inside the car .

Almost bought one for the wife. Then I started looking into customizing one. When I saw that replacement headlights were upward of $1k a pair I laughed and she got a Nissan.

Wow.
You should have done yourself a favor and kept your mouth shut. That way, everybody wouldn't know that in reality you're just a big...never mind.

I'm curious. How do they get them started? Also, isn't there some sort of steering lock? Do they just force their way through that?

Doors not locked and fob was probably in it... Surprised the PD is printing it, prints do no good for prosecution unless someone can place them behind the wheel in most jurisdictions..


BTW, that graphite dusts screws with electronics, you can tell them no on the printing of the car..

It's a sign to go back to the Land Cruiser...nice ride though!

Crazy this kind of thing happens all the time still despite all the technology and cameras everywhere!

I never want stolen stuff back, the only time I'm glad I have insurance.

Check that interior with a UV light, probably drove his girlfriend home, 8 times.

people leave their fob in the car with doors unlocked.
all the thief needs to do is push the start button

And insurance covers it being stolen?

yes..... but unattended ... its basically a private road with a gate ... think these guys simply walk in the woods around the gate and surf for open vehicles ....

according to my tracking system they drove the car 17 min and parked it ... didnt move again
