Failed Ducati robbery

In Moto, Croydon was targeted by hammer wielding thieves on Tuesday September 4 at 5:30pm. A gang of six youths equipped with three scooters attempted to steal two Ducati 1199’s by trying to walk the machines out in broad daylight. Unfortunately for them, the staff were not having any of it. Paul Read immediately spotted the robbers and tackled them inside the showroom,...

would be Ducati Thieving scum

Fantastic effort on part of the shop staff & all helpers - well done to all concerned. Pity the attempted thieving little barstewards didn't get a good beating in the process. It's the only language such scumbags understand. I hope the numberplate was a genuine one that belonged to the scum & that the plod follow this up properly. Shame for the shops and staff that they have this happen....they will be understandbly nervous when genuine customers turn up wearing their helmets now. Shop staff should be allowed to have and use tazers to deal with such scum.....and give them a few thousand volts up the scums sorry asses.......yay, what a pleasant thought.

Maybe it is better...

Maybe it is better if the police do nothing, since if they arrested the would-be thieves, there would likely be lawsuits against the staff for assault. : (

Hanging Is Too Good....

I doubt if LV09FWC is traceable to the criminal in the high-viz vest. Brilliant effort by the staff and I hope they catch the thieving little sods.

Pretty ballsy

If they had got them out of the shop, the thieves would have been caught, as they wouldn't be able to ride them away, they would have had to push them down the street. It's a sign of the times how desperate people are that they would try something like this on. Austerity measures clearly aren't working. Hopefully the local police will be able to spot them from the CCTV footage.

wet limp liberal bullshit

ahg196. Are you for real. This has nothing to do with austerity measures. These would be robbers are just fucking scum who rob because we live in a world where even if plod could get off its arse and actually do their job there would be some wet sad waste of a wank like you blaming "austerity measures". Give the little bastards some real jail time and kick their chav families out of their council houses. Until these twats feel real heat they will just carry on.
