Looks like the burglars are back!

Recommended Posts

Apparently a load of DOI road tools were stolen too...sometime between 30th April 1982 and yesterday.

It's only taken 30 years to realize they should be glazed from the inside!

you can't stop them,  you can however slow them down....

You can certainly slow them down if you catch them and cut their legs off.

Agreed. Bring on sharia law I say too. 

That's a bit extreme when they could ask the crims to just not do it though? I mean that would be cheap and they haven't got any money to go chasing them with anyway at the moment. So I think it would be jolly community minded of the criminals if they just voluntarily stopped burgularing for a bit and gave it a bit of a rest. With the money they save the Police could just do a couple of nice Tweets a months thanking them for being so community minded in not breaking into people houses, and telling people to watch out just in case the burglars start again as that would keep everyone on their toes.

There seems to be a lot of workers tools and equipment going missing this is bad because these thieves are depriving men of their livelihood.

Perhaps all those new workers who were employed work permit exempt had to get their tools from somewhere when they're on minimum wage?

Seen a few posts on social media saying ‘they are back’. One daytime attempt up Ramsey and another balaclava job down South, when people were in.  Think Buntys taxis posted something too.

Could just be usual pondlife and coincidences, or the start of something.. let’s hope not.

Still think they were linked to some 'insider' at steam packet and/or airport last time. Not convinced this time yet...seems a bit amateurish by sounds.

If they have returned or another lot started off, they can be safe in the knowledge that IOM Police are next to useless (there are one or two good police officers and one or two recently retired ones) and there is no chance they will be caught. They couldn’t solve the last crimewave a couple of years ago, what chance this time. Coupled with the fact that someone is setting fire to buildings on Mona Street, of which nobody has been caught.

They've arrested someone for that.

Shhhhh....don’t spoil his fun. Or the fact there has been a few burglars in court lately, if I’ve read the newspapers correctly.
