I went into town at lunchtime for the normal meeting and lunch with my colleagues and parked round the corner from the School. One hour later, at 2 PM, it had vanished. I have just the entire afternoon in various police stations making statements, and also visiting the car pound in case it was there (neg). Apparently 4 cars were taken today from the centre of town, and the police think there is a gang at work. They take them, drive them into Serbia and sell them, no questions asked. The only thing in my favour is that I was accompanied by my boss, who also happens to be the ex-President of the country, so everyone kind of stood to attention when he walked in, and the police insisted on coming back to where I had parked and taking photos! Much good that will do them, it is just a parking space by the river, and there was no broken glass or anything. But at least I know the police will do everything they can. I was in the police HQ when they put out a call to all units describing the car, but it could be across the border two hours after it was stolen. It is a bummer, I can't afford for that to happen right now - I need all my resources while I renovate the new house. And to add insult to injury, the new cat carrier (minus cat) was on the back seat and a box with all my riding gear and three helmets was in the back.
