- People taking photos of my house
I’m sat in my car while my toddler daughter sleeps in the back.
20 minutes ago a gentleman knocked on the car window and introduced himself as the local neighbour hood watch. He told me that at 2000-2015 hrs last night a car of Asian women pulled up outside my house and started taking photos (he decided to tell me they were of Pakistani origin), to me this info is relevant as it would indicate that they are from another town and have travelled to our village ‘on a mission’.
Our house is tucked away with no passing traffic, even some people on our estate don’t know we’re here.
Firstly, the man who told this information gave me reason to believe he was telling me the truth.
Assumimg it is true;
Why were they taking photos? I’m obviously concerned.
The guy said there have been a few garden sheds broken into and car tyres slashed and cars keyed recently. He also mentioned expensive bikes being stolen.
We have a garage rather than a shed and Im obviously a cyclist.
He gave me the make, model and reg of the car that was here and told me the reg matches the car, he’s already checked that out.
WTF do I do with this information? Other than insuring my bikes (new one needs covering) and being vigilant locking the house up etc, which is all normal anyway.
I’d rather not know this TBH! I don’t think I’ll be telling my o/h, she doesn’t need to know.
We were out at a wedding last night. It’s a nice area we’re in. The people taking the photos can only have been doing it for bad reasons, surely?Posted 3 years ago
I only mentioned their ethnicity because it was mentioned to me.
Like I say, I have reason to believe the guy was telling the truth and I have means of checking he is who he says he is, which I will do shortly.
He was there to tell me what happened last night, as per neighbourhood watch.Posted 3 years agotrail_ratMember
This happened to us.
Silver saab was hanging about in a gate end on the farm at ours.
Approached it to ask what he was looking for- folk often lost at our house.
He sped off at high speed as i got close
2 days later he appeared again- this time i just phoned the cops with the reg and description.
He aint been back.Posted 3 years ago

Ah yes, another example of Asian mothers who drive around looking for potential targets for their delinquent sons to senselessly vandalize.
Whatever else you say about the Pakistani community they certainly make committed parents.Posted 3 years ago

Don’t be surprised if you go to the police and they’ve had a report from four Asian women of some creepy guy hanging around in the bushes in your garden acting suspiciously. They were so concerned that the stopped the car and challenged him. When they disbelieved his “Neighbourhood Watch” bullshit they took photos of him.Posted 3 years agogarage-dwellerSubscriber
Iirc mcmoonter(?)(apols if I am misremembering) may have had similar previously and there was a lengthy thread.
I’d suggest you report to the local police and ask the neighbour hood watch guy to give you the details in writing. If it’s one of a number of similar reports tied to that vehicle then I guess they might just pay the reg keeper a visit. Or they may be known to them already.
If the house is off the beaten track / away from the main road and not on the market then it does seem a little odd.
It could be entirely innocent of course (and someone with an agenda could be winding you up) but it’s perfectly reasonable to be cautious if you think your being scoped for something nefarious.Posted 3 years ago
I don’t think their race or gender is relevant.
The OP begs to differ :
(he decided to tell me they were of Pakistani origin), to me this info is relevant as it would indicate that they are from another town and have travelled to our village ‘on a mission’.
So there you have it. They are quite possibly on a mission from another town.Posted 3 years ago
I don’t care about their race or gender, only it implies they’re not from here, that’s all. So they must have travelled here, why? So why would they be in this dead end road taking photos of my boring looking house?
I’ve just spoken to the neighbourhood watch guy again, he’s checked out the car and the reg matches the make + model, and is registered about 20 miles away from here.
It’s a legit car with no explanation for why there were here of what they were doing.
For those who seem to be mocking my inclusion of the race / gender. Do one, I’d be equally concerned if they were white! It’s the only information I have so I included it and would have done so no matter what the race or gender.
To those who question me posting on a cycling forum, STW is awesome for a quick response to any situation. It seems like I probably have nothing to worry about.
But I am worried and I will be informing the police on the non-emergency number.Posted 3 years ago
