Hey Guys,

Had some gear nicked out of my car last night:-

Shakespeare box with Breakaway backrest conversion. See piccy it's very distinctive and it has an old telephone number scribed on the inside.



Daiwa SLOSH30 loaded with red ice

Rig wallet + traces, bits box full of sakumas and the usual bits and bobs.

In addition a Medion PDA with Tom Tom sat nav.

To say I'm ****ed off would be an understatement. If anyone comes across this send me a pm. Oh and if you're offered it ffs don't buy it, I'd recognise the box anyhwere!

Cheers, Gaz.

Doncaster but I suspect the box will be dumped elsewhere so I've posted on several area forums. Nee hope of seeing it again but if I do I know it will be mine, its got some very distinctive marks on it.

sounds like smack rats!!!! please eeryone do not leave your sat nav holders on display, and make sure when you leave your car you rub the rubber sucker marks off the window. A sure sign to theives that you will have something worth nicking in the glove box or under the seat!!

Wahey ! The box has been found and is going to be returned today!!!

A guy that works for Tesco had been in the Tesco express shop early on Monday morning and found the box dumped in the churchyard about 200 yards up the road from my house. Being a fisherman himself he figured it had been nicked and shoved it in his van for safe keeping. He called to the shop later in the day to ask the girls that work there if they knew anything about it, by this time I'd placed an advert asking for info on the notice board in there. Hey presto phonecall from the guy last night, gear being dropped off at my house later today!

The thieves obviously got fed up lunking the weight of the box, nicked the slosh30 and dumped the rest.
Wow I'm a lucky sod!

Actually no I'm not, fished at Sutton on Sea last night and had my passenger door window smashed in!!! ARGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHHH.

I'm a rep and had a large piece of furniture on the backseat covered with bubble wrap...doh , yeah I know dont leave anything visible, well I wouldn't have except I can't lift the thing on my own.

This happened at the end of Bohemia Way so guys beware if you're parking there, leave nowt up for grabs. And all that hassle for a poncy flounder!

Anyways at least I get all my terminal tackle back and my beloved box that I've owned for 25 years!
