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?

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

Elementary brownstreak,firstly it would reveal how it was stolen eg.whether it be towtruck as mentioned in #4 or possibly hoody scum.Secondly,given it was a 2012 X-trail I suspect hoody scum wouldn’t have the nouse nor resources to steal the X-trail without a key.

Therefore while the CCTV is unlikely to have sufficient clarity to identify the thief it would resolve the issue of how it was stolen and potentially give some clues as to who the perpetrator is. 🙂

I should clarify that this was actually at Oaks Estate, so technically across the border.

Obvious Troll is VERY obvious.

I think you will find there is very little car theft in Oaks Estate. Probably because there are no cars worth stealing.

Still ACT though

Not that particular library, of course.

Unless the judiciary here lifts its ganme a bit and gaols them all.

As long as they have the visage of the malefactor who purloined the cabriolet.

…couldn’t keep up with the payments….insurance claim….nothing to see here.

Should have a tracker in it.

The Beamer I keep garaged in London got nicked while I was over there recently – the security company found it same day parked on a crappy scum-infested housing estate a few km away – the cops told me the scumbags have a device they use that interferes with your electronic key as you try to lock it, then they park the nicked car somewhere obvious and then watch it to find out if it’s being tracked. It’s only a matter of time before the well-known worthless Canberra scumbags achieve similar levels of technology. Unless the judiciary here lifts its ganme a bit and gaols them all.

Was that the “beamer” that they used when someone used to say “beam me up Scotty”?

Technically it’s across the border from NSW.

One way of stealing a new car is to tow it away. I know this happens a reasonable amount in Sydney. Flatbed towtruck pulls up and drags it up onto the flatbed and drives away.

I am aware of at least one incident in Canberra where someone left there car in a street for a couple of weeks while they were interstate and found it gone when they came back. One of the people living in the street said that they saw a tow truck pull up and drag it on to a flat bed and tow it away. After some inquiries it was found that an enterprising thief had called the tow truck and told him that his car had broken down and had the tow truck tow the car to his house. Needless to say, the thief was easily found and prosecuted.

I should clarify that this was actually at Oaks Estate, so technically across the border.

Do you still have possession of all the sets of keys? Because while I don’t know about X-Trails, recent model cars are usually pretty hard to steal on account of immobilisers coded into the keys.

Nothings hard to steal unless it’s bolted to the ground.
