Land Rover Stolen - Shropshire

Recommended Posts

A friend of my wife's has had her Land Rover stolen about midnight last night (she thinks) from her farm near Much Wenlock. I don't have many details other than it is blue and registraton V 875 KAW, but I assume that would be a Defender. Any information please pm me and I can pass it on or contact police  (West Mercia ?)


Please share if you can and thanks.

They seem ridiculously easy to steal given the amount that go walkies,even near new ones, really sad as they have such devoted owners 


What I was thinking - even very average/rusty examples aren't safe, a friend of mine has lost two 110's in the space of less than ten years, both were well worn and frankly, very 'used' looking shall we say. 


If you have one - nail the thing down with some decent security features. Don't let the fuckers win.

Sadly, it’s probably already in bits or in a shipping container somewhere.

Thanks for the Facebook suggestions. My wife actually found out about it through FB, and I see that as a result of the original post on FB the owner has joined Landywatch, which is a site dealing with such things, so it must be fairly common :(

Around 5 or 6 years ago, My Dad's friend had a smart looking Black 110 Defender crewcab pick up, It was a 1997 P reg.


Same as this one pictured below..




Anyway, He had it hooked up to a car trailer which he used to move cars about (auction collections etc) & one morning during the early hours, an attempt was made to steal it.

They had broke the passenger side front window & gained entry, They then had attempted to burst the ignition, as the cowling was broken off & the ignition barrel was barely hanging in there, but they must have got disturbed when doing this, as the attempted theft was only discovered by my Dads friend the next again morning.


He got rid of it pretty quickly after that. It put him off owning a Defender. Which was a shame, because it was handy for me as he moved my cars around for me, using the defender & trailer.


I personally have never had one, but I do not fancy having one after looking at that Landywatch page....They go missing fairly frequently  :shock:  :shock:  :shock:

      Cross posting this on behalf of someone on another forum I use regularly as I figure the more eyes open for this the better.  I know the folks over there would do the same if it was one of our motors that had gone missing.

      Quoted text below:

      "Hello all, not sure if this is the right part of the forum to place this but I’m sure the moderator will amend if need be.

      A dear friend of mine has had his 1993 C900 LPT Convertible stolen from NW London in the last week.
      The registration number is K453EYR.
      It’s in a lovely metallic green (Eucalyptus?), colour with super aero alloys and dove grey leather interior.
      The car was not in mint condition but it was attractive and drove with current MOT etc.

      My friend is dealing with the untimely loss of a parent so has asked me to place this post on his behalf.
      Behind the front passenger seat was a baby seat and a selection of work tools in the boot."

      Some images below:


      In the unlikely event that anyone sees or hears anything of the whereabouts of this car please let me (ideally and your local police force) know and I'll make sure that the feedback gets back to the original poster.
