Quality video, well worth installing IF you want to appear on Most Haunted.

Could be any low life tracky being.

Invest in better doors, as no matter how good the video, the courts will do nothing to such trash now. We are on our own against criminals now.

Why do businesses have such poor security when you have expensive stock.
Even putting small trackers on expensive bikes which costs hardly anything.
Alarms that are linked to your phones. Not expensive and not rocket science

Shame this item was not published earlier in the day (morning) rather than the evening.
As it may have meant there was more chance of getting the bikes back?

The local scum have to fund their habit and it is easier to steal than to get a job
