    Ok. Will fess up. I left the back door open when I went to bed on Monday.

    Thieving sh!t took 2 laptops, iPad, iPhone, wallet, keys, and various bits and pieces.

    Got a call from the police this morning. Whilst the local rescue dogs were training they sniffed out ALL my possessions.

    Been blessed. Lesson learnt.

    They robbed more houses than they could carry stuff so buried some of it in the woods in the college next door. Just happens that’s where they train rescue dogs (which in Hertfordshire is a bit bizarre in itself)

    time to pop down to the police kennels with a box of the canine version of Whiskas Temptations as a thank you.

    The dogs are getting a guest appearance in the local paper apparently.

    Buy a lottery ticket tomorrow 😉

    Was burgled a few weeks back, the thieving scummers didn’t get much but the whole experience costs ££ + mental agro.

    Amazing story! Might get £500 from a tabloid for that if you don’t mind having your mug in the paper (and everyone knowing you leave our door open 😛 )

    Nice story.
    hope you’ve learned to improve security.
    Shame the scumbags didn’t get nicked though, or mauled by a police dog.

    I had my house broken into and car stolen in the space of two weeks this time last year. Last week I got a phone call from the police in Austria letting me know that the engine had turned up in Graz. 😐

    Wow what a bonus.

    Where abouts in Herts and which woods?

    always gets me. Does this mean that most nights when I lock up some scumbag comes round and tests the doors?

    That was exactly my thought, but I didn’t like to dwell on it too much…

    But did he mean unlocked or actually wide open?

    Even so, I’d hope there aren’t shits walking past within view of my door. Admittedly I don’t know the OP’s locale.

    I’d get me a metal detector or retired police dog and head into the woods who knows what you might find…

    Why not a PIR activated camera and some kind of alert system at the location of the stash? Detect and identify the culprits when coming back to collect the loot.

    Should have kept quiet and let the attack dogs stake out the woods! That would have been a much better story and then both dog teams get some fun and celebrity.

    I do like the scenarios on those “police, video cop traffic drug squad” programmes where the toe rag screams a load of verbal defiance about how hard he is at the coppers then ends up howling like a baby “getitoffgetitoffgetitoff” when the police ( after plenty of warning ) unleash their “furry crocodile” on the miscreant.
