Sorry to hear about that Caz. We had the same thing happen to us about 2yrs ago. Police didn't even bother to come out though - apprently if there's no blood then it's not worth them coming - they just gave us an incident number. I still say that the best deterrant is a dog - although I know people's lifestyles don't always suit keeping one. I'll definitely be having one when I don't work.

I totally agree Mustaine. Our two barky dogs combined with prickly shrubs are an excellent deterrent.
We also have the standard back up - gadder and baseball bat.

Oh, we have the prickly plants, climbing roses and pyracantha but it doesn't deter. They walked the quad up the wall of the building onto the roof, straight through the pyracantha! :roll:

The little darlings have been over again. Caught 4 of them on camera. I don't know if this is going to work but I'll try and put a bit of the footage on here. I've had to reduce the quality and I've cut it down, they were there for about 20 minutes sat on the school building roof before they actully came over.

Can you ask them to walk next time so as to avoid blurring .. that's so inconsiderate of them!

Never mind walking instead of running, they could have faced the camera and smiled! Yes, I'm afraid the quality isn't good but that's due to having to compress the video for the internet - I do still have the original footage though. :wink:

So...the original footage isn't blurry then?

-
I quite like the look of this stuff - DyeTective (clicky). Undoubtedly not as effective as a dye pack disguised as a bottle of lager ( ;) :lol: ) but I'd bet it'd give them a good scare when their hands turn red.

:lol: Yes the original footage is still a bit blurry, due to the lack of light, so better lighting is needed and is on my shopping list! :wink: However, I have a few clues both from the video and from their conversations! I have more footage as they were there for some time and the system automatically records when it senses motion.

I like the caught red handed idea. I have set other little erm, surprises and I won't be beaten. When they nicked the quad it made me physically sick and affected me for days, but this time I feel quite different and determined to stop this. My sister had stuff stolen from outside her back door last Saturday and Tan had her shed broken into a few weeks ago. So, I'm not the only victim and at least they didn't get anything this time. I wouldn't even have known they'd been this time if it hadn't been for the camera, though they did leave the fridge door open slighly but I'd have probably blamed hubby or our Dan for that, so the camera saved them from getting an ear bashing! :lol:

Is it sod's law or what?!!! I don't usually switch the cameras on until I go to bed and the thieving little sh..s have been and raided the fridge while I was sat here on the computer. Just before half past ten tonight. A neighbour heard them and frightened them off so we knew which way they'd gone. They're sat down at the entrance to the Carrs right now supping our cans. No, I don't put booze in the fridge any more but we've been on holiday and our Dan had put his in there. Police are here now!! Got to go!
