    My next door neighbors car got stolen on saturday night, they broke/entered his house between the hours of 1-6 am and took his keys. This only came to my attention, when me and my father realized that our shoes and my quiet expensive jacket had disappeared this morning and spoke to my mate and he told me about 4 cars been stolen from my area (westhill) 3 AUDI and 1 Corsa Limit ed on saturday night. They must have tried my house given up as i have 2 doors to get in my house main door was locked but not the outer door and i always lock my car in the garage at night. Intel has it that, these theifs/gypsies walking around daytime targeting houses with cars and stealing them at night. Scary thinking that they tried my house.

    JUST A WARNING TO THE ABERDEEN AREA, LOCK YOUR DOORS AND HIDE YOUR KEYS....

    You shoes vanished so this meant your neighbours car was stolen?

    No forced entry at my house. As the door to the front lobby is open but the main door to my house is LOCKED. So they must have came in the lobby door and realized the main door was locked and ****ed off with my jacket and dads shoes..

    Read it again mate,

    My next door neighbors car got stolen on saturday night, they broke/entered his house between the hours of 1-6 am and took his keys. This only came to my attention, when me and my father realized that our shoes and my quiet expensive jacket had disappeared this morning and spoke to my mate and he told me about 4 cars been stolen from my area.

    Still sounds to me as if you only realised that your mates car was stolen because your shoes were missing along with a jacket.

    You said that they must of tried to get into your house but you have two doors so they couldn't, were your shoes in your mates car then?

    EDIT i see you altered your post, your first door was open.. I see now!

    Keep your car keys safe and your shoes even safer because if they take your car, you'll need your shoes to run after them!

    In all seriousness, toughen up your security fella.

    ^ Thanks for the heads up. Same sort of thing has been happening in Insch. Someone had their Edition 30 stolen but later recovered in Northfield :busted_cop:. The police have advised that both Westhill and Insch have been heavily targeted of late.

    Anyone who lives up here knows this is extremely rare and a very unwelcome development to what was one of the safest areas in the UK.

    Bad times.

    ^ True fella. Had the pikeys round my door last night offering to clean my drive or sharpen the garden tools. Told to foxtrot oscar smartish. Funny how this coincides with the circus trucks being in the area of late. It's gross generalisation I know, but nothing for years even with the upsurge in travellers and then the circus is in town, cars start getting nicked and some funny sounding loon wants to sharpen my tools?! Not impressed. Maybe the local minks have stolen everything of remote interest in town and are hitting the affluent commuter towns. I just wish the local constabulary would be quicker to spot the trends and have more of a presence. Ah well, mine's insured. I might get a new car quicker if they target mine however.

    Just be careful mate. I had gypsies come round to mine a few weeks back, offering to clean my patio, he was dressed in a high vis jacket, quoted me £600 and I showed him my £350 kacher (i think thats how u spell it) patio cleaner. Think they go round picking out targets.... They are seriously ****ing up the insurance statistics for us, as Westhill is a nice quiet and secure location. Low life scum bags

    Ilim, Dan has linked this thread over on EastsideVW since it's the local forum. Obviously this is of real concern as car thefts of this magnitude are not the norm. Cars get nicked yes, but not all Audi's on the same night. I purposefully ignored the Corsa. P&J is interested in a piece too. Maximum exposure!

    Link's in the post fella, but the actual URL is http://www.eastsidevw.co.uk/board/index.php?/topic/4978-audi-thefts-westhill/

    Chris is an active member of the forum and seems sound, but it's up to you if you want to talk to him.
