Again not fishing related but the two times we've had things stolen and had returned.

My wifes Audi A3 s-line was stolen from our works in October 2000 a few months old then in Jan 2021 I had a phone call from Gloucestershire constabulary they had recovered the vehicle, it had been dumped blocking a private lane so the land owner called it in, police reckon the car was being used by criminals as a pool car they made one arrest as the wife doesn't smoke and I never smoke in her vehicles but the ashtray was full of fag butts, when they done a DNA check it came back with someone on record so they managed to arrest and convict him, apart from a broken quarter light the vehicle smelling like an ashtray and a couple of hundred miles on the clock there was not a lot wrong with the vehicle, this car had a hidden draw under the front seat I had two sets of sunglasses stored in it and so did the wife probably not far short of a thousand pound, first thing I checked when it was returned and they were still in there.

The second time I had a year old 800cc waverunner stolen from my unit at a weekend, again about 2 months or so later Swindon constabulary called to say they had recovered it from a drive in Swindon we had smar****er registration so they could trace it back, they arrested and convicted the guy who had it, this came about as a neighbor on the estate found it highly unusual because she knew them as a family living on the social with a scrap yard for a garden and wondered how they could afford one so she phoned in her suspicion.

Not exactly fishing related, but my van got broken into at my works Xmas party (pub car park).
I had my phone and wallet in the pub with me, but my bag (with an old iPhone 5, Nexus tablet, GoPros etc) was taken from the van.

Being retards (a common trait amongst people who feel the need to break into cars) they turned the iPhone 5 on so I promptly told the police their address and they went round to the house and searched it (the scum bags had previous for van break ins and tool thefts, so getting the warrant didnít take too long)

They had already moved some of the gear on, but the iPhone had itís IMEI blocked making it hard to use anywhere in Europe.
I got the tablet and some other bits back, plus it put another black mark against the scumbags.

Has anyone considered using the little Apple Tags to secure gear? They are too big to fit inside a rod blank, but they could easily be hidden in the stitching or the rod bag, carryall etc

My brother has quite a few of them dotted around on different things, from his key fob to his expensively customised Golf R
