indeed, its prob the same people who took the split from brands hatch, an early bay was stolen in a similar way in the kent area as well, each bus is unique so they must either ship them out the country or spend alot of time giving them new paint and interiors. The only to do next is to put a ground anchor in at home and chain it to the beam and rear gearbox cradle

********** FOUND************
Thanks to a dog walker out on a hike 'Wills' has been found. Stashed in under growth.
Police believe they hide them to make sure tracker isn't transmitting then go back for it! Needless to say we are having 'words' with tracker company. We had to have one fitted
For insurance as our last bus was also stolen, almost 6 years ago to the day!!

We would like to thank you all for your help & support :0) cheers :compress:

Any chance of naming which tracker was installed? Or what the tracking company had to say about it not working? Or their advice?

It looks like the Tracker was fault, due to the fact a blocker has to be near the vehicle to block the signal in the first place?

As if they parked it up to check, it had one fitted to come back later on.
If they had a blocker, there would be no need to park it up somewhere it would be in a garage away from the public.
The Tracker will always be active, and should have no black spots areas.

Just seen these devices, so people can steal gps tracked vehicles or con there bosses. Whats the world coming to when devices like this are readily available to buy with no retribution or id! Big ground spike and lock then, I used to have a tazer long arm steering lock with remote and was advise to get rid as if the thief was rendered unconcious he would sue, if he woke up before I had taken them for a Mersey swim! We need trunk monkey's.So pleased you got your bus back.
