thiefs be aware lads its getting worse 9 Years, 6 Months ago Karma: 80
I GOT THIS FROM THE TOC THOUGHT ID POST ID HERE BE AWARE LADS THIS HAPPENDS ALOT!!!!!!!!!!!



I was driving home with kavanagh gt on here and two vans flew up behind me with the full beams on flashing me. I thought it was someone I knew messing so I gave them the indicators then next minute this navy transit pulls over the wrong side of the road n starts forcing me into the hard shoulder. I kinda shit myself then and dropped the shoe.
The two vans chased me then a silver Hiace flew up the hard shoulder beside me and the transit o the wrong side of the road and tried to sandwich me in. I jammed on the brakes cos I was gonna be cleaned out of it and the two vans shot forward. One van slammed on and got in behind me and was literally sitting on my back bumper and the other van slowed right up in front of me trying to box me in yet again so I dropped a gear and went around them and didn't lift the shoe till Kilcock.
At this stage myself and Kavo were shitting it and we're slowing down coming up to the big roundabout outside Kilcock down onto the n4. The silver Hiace came up the hard shoulder but the hard shoulder ended so I had to pull too the wrong side of the road or he would have taken the side of the cam as he wasn't stopping! The van cut in in front of me, the transit again right behind me and the Hiace handbrakes across two lanes on the sliproad blocking me off. When I seen the van block the road sideways I knew we were in big trouble and jammed on straight away. The two doors burst open and I saw two lads must easily have been 20 stone each running towards me with stuff in their hands. I glanced in the rear view mirror and saw the other van burst open and a loada lads running at the cam.
I was very lucky as on the right hand side there was a concrete v shaped median with a very big curb so don't think I would have got around it. I sent the cam sideways around the concrete island and they all ran after me but I didn't know there was another one in the silver Hiace and the van moved forward blocking the roundabout so I had the roundabout and a big drop on my right, the Hiace blocking the road again in front, the concrete on my left and all these lads running at me behind. I sent the twin cam full circle around again and drove the wrong way around the roundabout and one of them smashed a brick off the side of the cam. I got down on the n4 flat and got away. To say I fuckin shit myself is an understatement! They must have followed me and wanted the car cos I can't think of any other reason. That car would be worth a lot of money in parts or maybe they just seen the car doing rings and wanted to wreck it for the night who knows.
I'm sick of this country it's gone to the fuckin dogs!!!

Is this for real? A Dublin phenomenon or what? Never heard of anything like it happening down here.

If I were to see this happening then all those little horses under the lid would finally get their wish. Im fairly certain 300 horses driven well would outrun a couple of vans and a hiace. And like everyone on here has already said, if they threw a brick ..... I wouldnt even think twice about parking the Tubby on top of them!

Some people would do anything to steal or wreck someones pride and joy though so its maybe not as far fetched as it sounds.

Well less than £10k potentially.

As Erin has said, I think there is more to this story than the story teller is saying.

As far as stealing cars to order, it is probably worth remembering exactly how 'desirable' and likely this is with a 20 year old Toyota. While we may like our cars it is fairly unlikely that they would appear on a list held by international car exporting criminals. I would think the 'steal to order' market is more interested in Porsche, fancy Mercs/BMWs and up (in price)

Yeah it does sound like something from a James Bond movie but sure there is always a possibility that something like that could happen.
And yeah if someone threw a brick at my car id defo try run him over, would be worried about damaging the bodykit though.
I got this little dash cam its very handy and good for its price i recommend getting one for situations like this,

Hiace ..... twincam ........... high speed chase



Has to be BS, something missing.
As he said he's used to dounts in this so one would have to presume this is not mint, therefore cancelling the rob to order argument.
I think he could have omitted a vital part of this story?
Sounds more like something that could happen if someone was tormented form dounts outside their house / work?

Lawl at this story.
A prize for the best interpretation of what actually happened...
Here's mine...
What actually happened was the guy who owned the twin cam slept with a traveller bride to be and the vans filled with 20 stoners was the groom and his extended travelling family out to seek revenge for de-flowering his gypsy bride to be.
Lol-cano!

Re: thiefs be aware lads its getting worse 9 Years, 6 Months ago Karma: 284
a lad pulled from his a5 yesterday another pulled form his evo today at gunpoint at the traffic lights

AN armed carjacking has happened in broad daylight in a north Dublin suburb for the second time in less than 23 hours. The latest attack happened when a man was forced out of his Mitsubishi Lancer car by a man with a handgun.

It occurred outside the Clearwater Shopping Centre at 2.55pm yesterday when the man was approached by a man with a firearm.

Gardai say the attacker -- who was wearing a white boiler suit and had an orange scarf over his face -- threatened the victim with the gun and forced him out of his car.

The attacker then jumped into the car and sped off on the N2.

The car was found abandoned a short distance away by armed detectives who had been alerted to the situation.

Traumatised

The victim -- a man from Glasnevin was uninjured in the incident but is said to be deeply traumatised.

Sources say that gardai have identified the suspect -- a Finglas criminal -- but have not yet arrested him.

The carjacking came just a day after a businessman was dragged out of his top-of-the-range silver Audi A5 coupe at the nearby Finglas Business Park on the Tolka Valley Road.

Dumped

A gun was pointed in the man's face and he was threatened before being dumped on to the ground.

Two criminals -- who are believed to be in their 20s -- sped off in his car which was found undamaged around half an hour later in nearby Fairlawn Park.

The hold-up sparked a major garda manhunt with armed units deployed as well as the garda helicopter.

Neither carjacking incident is thought to be linked and officers are hopeful that both cases will be solved.

Yesterday's incident at Clearwater is the second armed incident at the shopping centre in less than a week.

Investigations are continuing into the armed robbery of the Tesco filling station in Clearwater Shopping Centre in the early hours of Sunday morning. A sum of just over €200 was stolen in that incident after a thug armed with a handgun entered the filling station and then threatened staff with a firearm. After taking the cash, the masked suspect simply rode away from the scene on a pushbike.

Amateurs pure and simple..they the bargain basement of crooks. The amount of risk involved to gain a measly €200 is ridiculous:

This is the risk you take in the US if you try and rob somebody:
