    Default A Car theft and Recovery - Corolla GLI 2012

    Salams!

    A friend of mine hooked me up from the street few days back and wanted me to go along with him to his place, even if just for 10 minutes. Since I was busy at that moment, I had to ask him about the urgency for this, but he simply told me plz come along, I know even you have had a car stolen, so this would probably help you a bit for your next car?!!! Course I followed, Lolz!

    A few minutes later when we reached his venue, it appeared that he actually wanted me to check out how a bunch of suckers had tried to take away his brand new, still unregistered, only 6 hours old Corolla GLI from his porch area!

    I went inside and took these snaps, thinking that they may prove helpful to those of you who feel their cars are safe inside a covered porch!

    Plz check out, the incident happened here in Wah, just 6 hours after he had brought his car home from the showroom. Means, he parked the car at 9.pm, and got the guests in by 3.am in the morning! What an intelligence!!

    Main Gate ( 5.5 feet tall):

    A Car theft and Recovery - Corolla GLI 2012 -391693

    Main Gate lock ( new lock rings welded):

    A Car theft and Recovery - Corolla GLI 2012 -1026633

    And broke: ( They didn't break the lock, just the rings it was locked into!

    A Car theft and Recovery - Corolla GLI 2012 -391739

    And next step, the Porch gate, fully covered:

    A Car theft and Recovery - Corolla GLI 2012 -391740

    Point of lock, from outside:


    A Car theft and Recovery - Corolla GLI 2012 -391742

    And broke again:

    A Car theft and Recovery - Corolla GLI 2012 -391747

    The Jackpot:

    A Car theft and Recovery - Corolla GLI 2012 -391749

    Steering console, opened up:

    A Car theft and Recovery - Corolla GLI 2012 -391750

    Steering lock, Key assembly:

    A Car theft and Recovery - Corolla GLI 2012 -391751

    The suckers managed breaking their way in and out of the house unnoticed. They pushed the car out of the gate and tried hot-wiring it in the street some 80 feet away from the house.

    This is when the "man of the match", and elderly bazurk, had woken up for his morning prayer and from a window on the 2.nd floor of the house had caught sight of some people pushing away with the silver babe! He alerted his nephews on the ground floor, who -after a couple of minutes deliberation - went out to the street and found 5 cockroaches fiddling around with the car, bonnet open. They fleed and left the car behind.

    Call from tracker company was received, but only after the owners already were standing in the street. Btw, the tracking company had "observed" the car to be some 30 kms off spot! Lolz!

    The worst thing about this whole incident is that the thieves arrived to the house with a new Corolla parked, only 6 hours after it reached home from the showroom!!!!

    I have said it before, I wanna say it again, Corolla owners are up against a very vicious, well-connected network of car theft mafia, which is informed about the exit of vehicles right from the moment the new cars leave from the showrooms, probably with some "Indus Connection" involved.

    You just can't guard your Corolla enough. Better stay away from it! (I am fighting against the virus, still)!

    It requires this kind of security, 2-4-7:

    A Car theft and Recovery - Corolla GLI 2012 -391762

    2 civics of my friends got stolen and guess what both had trakers... both were gone within 5 min and both are still missing... so FU*K Tracker

    What tracker jams the bonnet opener , It only triggers if the battery is fiddled with. Or alerts your cars starting etc if the alerats are on.

    Thanks Umair bro. And you're right. Have already guarded myself pretty much, but nothing is enough against these suckers.

    I am in a very confusing dilemma these days. Seems following your "menu" will be the last resort, but I still have some reservations due to the early release of new one, there's "fire" on both fronts. What the heck to do?

    Btw, Congrats. Found your post few days back.

    @Megustabond.............Bro, nothing special in the last pic, else than for the sights of one of my guns, lolz!

    @Chinyoti............Bro, they escaped. My friend only oils his guns, doesn't use them. I personally would have held them up to the best of my ability, as I am eager myself to know the final destination of these cars. I hope this is not the route Indus is getting it's parts from!!!!!

    we had a robbery at our empty home 2 yrs ago and the theives did not break or cut the locks n just cut the KUNDA joint similar to the one shown in pics. theives are getting clever and using new noiseless cutters/ crook bars which do the job. ALLAH bachay sub ko. security measures used by the majority of us need to be looked into and redone as these are outdated and ineffective. China Tri Star locks and the KUNDAY need to be upgraded. electronic security measures need to be explored and installed. may be after marker immobolizers to be installed till the time company doesnt offer it. some sort of wheel clamps mite prove effective for the time being

    Well its a relief that they got their car back atleast. So guys here's my story. My car toyota corolla (ST-91) black 2.0D 2010 model was stolen from my house on Nov 29th 2010 the same way as the above car. we tried everything but had no luck. now wait here's the catch, ON 19th APRIL 2011, i spotted my car in saddar Rawalpindi, it was bearing a lahore number with LEGAL/ORIGNAL PUNJAB plates (LE-10-649) I chased it and guess what, The car stopped at the house of (ex DG ISI) GENERAL RETD HAMID GUL's daughter, UZMA GUL (owner of VARAN travel in Rawalpindi). I called up my father and we tried to talk it out with that ***** Lady, but she was reluctant to talk or even negotiate as she said her husband was out of pindi, when he returns then we can sort it out. Our badluck was that my father didn't call the police as he trusted her words as she was the daughter of HAMID GUL (ex DG ISI). now cutting the story short, they sent the car somewhere else, the car was sent the very next day it was spotted and the case is still going on in the court.

    the sad part is that our beloved police is afraid to even ask them as she is the daughter of a general. Everything we tried is in vain. Ye tou halat hai hamaray mulk k hafizon ki..

    as the owner brought car directly from showroom...so i guess trakker was installed by showroom people...i believe both these parties should be included in the investigations....as they had the first hand knowledge about location and registration status of vehicle...

    just my two cents...
