New Car Stolen – Parliamentary Triangle – Sophisticated Criminals?

By fritzmacgritz 10 July 2013 35

2012 Nissan X-trail (GOLD), rego NSW JEN-691 stolen from National Library car park (closest to Treasury Building) yesterday (Tuesday, 9 July 2013), between 1.15pm and 4.00pm.  Distinctive blue child seat in rear (ugly 90s style covering)….

Theft is very concerning as new cars, one would assume, are difficult to steal?  Anyone else had a similar newish car stolen in Canberra?

If anyone sees this car dumped around the suburbs, I would be most grateful for a notification or referral to ACT Policing.

What’s Your opinion?

Security staff of the NLA claim that the carpark is the responsibility of the National Capital Authority, and as such, does not patrol the area, nor do they see it part of their responsibility to intervene with any criminal activity outside of the NLA building. This is unlike Treasury security, which does patrol nearby car parks – I give my compliments and acknowledge their foresight.

I was informed by security that on one recent day, 36 break-ins near the NLA were reported. Also, cars have been stolen from the car park on a weekly basis.

Perhaps they should have signs up ‘High theft and break in area not gummints problem’

Of course the fuel pump shut off then poses a problem, but that would certainly be a good way to nick airbags (which they do) and anything else bolted to the car. Even bolting stuff down doesn’t help.

Unfortunately if late model cars are found they’re usually found in an interstate garage in various states of being stripped down and harvested for parts.

Some developments…

Vehicle colour is SILVER – Not GOLD

There is no CCTV footage of the carpark in question – cameras only point into the NLA entrance

Some comments are gratuitous and idle muckraking – this is not an insurance scam – so new car owners beware of this apparent high tech theft. Doubtful this is also a joy ride – who steals a diesel powered wagon for fun? Suspected slice and dice for parts.

Perhaps the best advice so far to the general community is that a thief is hiding in the car park using a code duplicator…

Last time I looked, Questacon had cameras facing in the direction of the National Library.

Really? Even with the key out of the ignition and the doors locked, the car thinks it has been crashed into? Must remember not to leave my car bonnet open so this can’t happen.

I saw busted glass from a break-in or theft in the NLA carpark at about 6pm yesterday. I thought it was pretty surprising inside the triangle, but I never risk leaving anything in my late-model X-Trail anyway.

This would mean the thieves will have to re-set the radio and if they don’t have the code they will be pissed off.

Don’t be daft. How can aliens anally probe a car!

They were following the “X-Trail”

Up the tailpipe, Duh!

But seriously, with all these apparent features that prevent vehicle theft in effect, how do we know that this isnt just some elaborate insurance scam?

#Hypothetical Scenario #1

A 2012 model car which someone may be having trouble paying for and also, it is insured for its current replacement costs through a less than vigilant insurer. Person “loses” car and claims insurance quickly because the Police have investigated.

Or…..

#Hypothetical Scenario #2

The Government’s Education revolution had more of an effect than previously reported and the locals bogan’s are reported as: Havin da mad tek skils now, Broo!!!

Is there not external CCTV at the Nat Lib?

How would a few grainy images of a skinny scumbag wearing a hoody help?

I agree. There’s no point even looking at evidence once you have made your own conclusions about what it shows. Any additional information would just clutter up the place.

So we know who did it and where the car is, yeah…?

1. Hang on, what side are you on now? Cameras ARE some use? Phew!
2. The cameras would have allowed me to say “spotto”. Before the Nissan was stolen. Obviously.
3. *thinks* Must get a smiley face for ironic comments …
