Mk1 and mk2 escort, trailers & more, EAST KILBRIDE c14/02/15

Seen this on facebook about an hour ago

MOTORSPORT COMMUNITY URGENT APPEAL!!! - MOTORSPORT THEFT!!

WE NEED YOUR HELP!!

We as a Motorsport family are angry and disgusted that people thought to be in the motorsport community have broken into our Dad’s (Jim Carty) premises in East Kilbride, Scotland and stolen the following item;

Mk2 Escort Gartrac shell new (in sand coloured primer)
Mk1 Escort left hand drive complete car (Orange)
Brian James Trailer - A-series
White Brian James Race Shuttle RS3
Subaru WRC rims & tyres (gold)
Metro 6r4 8x17" Compomotives
Several parts for Subaru & Metro 6r4
Commercial nifty lift 120 (yellow)

The police have been notified and unfortunately they believe that people in the know stole these items form our family. It sickens us to think that people in the Motorsport community could do this to others in the community. We are heart broken for our family, who worked hard all their lives to enjoy taking part & being part of a sport they loved, for some people to steal & take away their prize possessions, it is indescribable & painful!

We would like to ask all in the greater Motorsport community to share this status and help us find these despicable people and, if they are not lost forever, return these items to their rightful owners! We will post pictures in a few days!

If you are offered these items or hear anything please notify us as soon as possible.

Please take care of your Motorsport possessions; there are some horrible crooks out there!

Thank you for your help!
Jim Carty's Family - East Kilbride, Scotland

Hope they get all the stuff back but seems like it's been done to order

Looks like someone has been well organised in removing that much stuff without getting caught.. :madashell: :madashell: :madashell: :madashell:
Think if there caught they should tie a rope round there waist then tie it to the FRONT bumper of a motor and see how fast then can run before you drive over them.....
Remembering to stop...reverse back and drive over them again...... :madashell:

Found out yesterday that the mk2 shell stolen in East Kilbride in February of last year was recovered a few months after it was stolen.
It was discovered purely by chance by the police who were attending another call! The shell was recovered in one piece however the LHD mk1 Escort & race shuttle that were stolen at the same time are both still outstanding.
