Landywatch.

To all you Land Rover owners out there this may be of interest to you.

Lots of Landies going missing at the mo' so this guy has started this forum, they do "sky tagging" - a large serial number on the roof so the old bill can spot em from the copter

Funny - You should bring this up on here.  

I was in a meeting this morning (I work for Landrover) with ref to many Land Rovers going missing  

In fact we have a customer who lives on a farm estate in Stirling who has had 4 out of her 8 defenders taken in the past 3 months, the remaining vehicles are now coming into us next week to get trackers put on!  

No one seems to know why these thefts are happening   all except Defenders which are easy enough to steal as many farm folk who have them etc dont bother locking them when they are finished for the day/night.

4 out of 8 been nicked, my god having one vehicle go would be bad enough.

The admin guy on there RIK is from near here and I had a few car stickers to pass out for him, it was only today whilst giving one out I thought about sticking it on a couple of forums.

P.S You couldn't get me a job at Halewood could you?

lol, if only it was that easy....

I have put this on my facebook page and will email this to my works and see if I can bring this up in the next meeting that I go to.

Will keep you updated, thanks for this.

I along with Stu would be mortified/horrified if anyone stole his landie

Good idea.

As far as the word on the street goes, they are being stripped down and sold on as spare parts, but not sure how many spares you could actually move on, regarding the amount that are being lifted.

This post is interesting.

    everyone that owns a LR needs spare parts, thats why the theives have a never ending market.    

Get wise people go Jap

The Aussies have got it correct (one of the few things they got correct) Landy: LandCruiser

The police round here don't bother with helicopters, they just follow the trail of oil.  They've also negated the requirement for potentially dangerous police chases by just phoning round every petrol station within an eight mile radius and getting them to close.  Sorted

One for the Pot

I have one from SkyTag, they send me a monthly report showing me where the LR has been and at what times.

Put a tracker in it or lose it......    :

That's brilliant so when they take the LR to bits to sell - they've also got a brand new trackers to sell as well
