Dodgy scrap men scouting S17


Recommended Posts

At the risk of starting an old topic afresh, I was just putting my baby down for her nap when I heard my neighbour's dog barking. Went downstairs to find two very dodgy looking blokes in high visibility orange and yellow coming out from our garage conversion(!)

One of them saw me through the front door and then decided to knock; I answered through the window and he wanted to know if I wanted the "scrap" removed from my garage?! :suspect: Who the hell gave him permission to walk up to my house and enter my property without asking? I told him it's not scrap but he wasn't looking at me, he was busy taking a good look through the window into our living room ...

Meanwhile his partner was entering our neighbour's house and peering in through their window. It was a white van and i was silly enough not to have noticed the number plate. But these men looked really dodgy. Should i be concerned? :confused:

I caught some in a neighbours garden the other week. They were piling the contents of his shed near the gate ready for a quick getaway.

 

When I challenged them they seemed to think they had a perfect right to do what they were doing.

should say something to police, call 101. At least they will be onn the watchout for them. Usually scrap men, have a van without a top on it.

 

Unfortunately now they have got wise to using pickups, as the police stop them, a lot now have transit style vans sometimes with ladders on the top, so they look like builders. Seen quite a few of them lateley.
