    a van was used , that's for sure , and it all happened on a week-end , while we were on a hollyday , they searched trough everything , leaving the cheaper things behind . More things were left behind , near the door , such as weapons , hand grenades , so they had to run in a hurry (?)and planned to come back later on (?), as we were suposed not to come home that week , but we returned the very same day from our hollyday,

    well at least its comforting that there is scumbags in belgium as well as the uk. things here are well out of control sadly, wish you luck philip
    We're not better off here , I think it's a common habit nowadays , unfortunately for those who are serious , and act the way they should , my trust is far gone now ,

    I advice everybody now , take good close up pictures from your stuff , detailed , as good as possible , because it's really difficult as time goes by to recognize your items .
    I hope if anything turns up , anywhere , people will be honest to tell or call to local police forces , because it's a very big loss , financially and emotionally. Yesterday I got a message from a german collector , who's motorbike Harley Davidson and collection has been stolen , I hope the thieves will get caught
