Big commiserations RedRocket.
But to be honest...
Security guard may well be employed indirectly by yourselves (via maintenance costs?), but ho w much is he actually earning.
I know the Guards where we are earn a pittance and probably minimum wage.
So, on earning such a pittance, they can either be supplementing it with a few tip offs (anyones flat been burgled recently, or maybe a few cars robbed?), or just genuinely thinking it really ain't worth getting/giving a slapping for 5 an hour. They're probably just glorified auto phone diallers.
Doesn't help, but it can be replaced. (and take the blade to France)

Well the guard may earn peanuts but as there's a lot of cicumstancial evidence indicating that he has an involvement with a band of thieving scumbags the police should at least get a statement from him and check his phone records. If he eas not involved he's at best a complete waste of a minimum wage or whatever and we'd be better off having no security for all the use that he was. How can a serious crime (the theft of my bike is certainly serious crime) be comitted only 10 yards from his office and he doesn't call the police until the thieves are long gone or get a reg no. of the vehicle?
I read on another post that the insurance companies should petition the govt to take action on this. If vehicle crime was taken more seriously and carried heavier penalties there would be a lot less of it. Maybe it's a strategy to get us all off the roads!!

first of all, commiserations - i had my yellow 748 nicked about 5 weeks ago. just got the insurance cheque today, but much as i try, i can't get it to do wheelies!

speaking of insurance companies - there's not much chance of them lobbying for measures to reduce theft....reason? (IMHO). they recoup the previous year's losses through slightly increased premiums in the next year. now insurance companies don't make a great deal of profit on the difference between premiums in/claims out, they make the vast majority of their profits from investing in the stockmarket using the cash they have on account......so higher premiums, means more cash to play with = higher profits = bad idea to encourage measures which will lower premiums.

Sorry to hear of the loss of your bike by scumbags. As I was reading your story I was thinking that the guard/s may have been involved even before you suggested it.

Club Sting Team

How about regionally based club "sting teams"?

These could be based on members volunteering to get together to initiate a sting with the action captured on video. Then the evidence passed onto the police - or the sting team "arresting" the culprits. Or something on these lines.

Just a thought. I hate to have my bike nicked a feel impotent knowing (or suspecting I know who the buggars were)
