    The power of social media and forums like this can make the world a very small place, very quickly. I am so glad I forked out a little more for the SMS camera- without it I would have truly lost them. The police were very helpful when they were informed, however they were not needed to get them back. FB and this forum did the Job!!! They were found around half hour drive from where they were taken in the Pontypool area and I did not know the individuals (and it was not kids).

    At the time of posting the original thread and FB posts I was 6000 miles away in Vietnam- I have been back in the country just two days. I received the images on my phone via WI-FI in the hotel and tried to get them spread as far as possible.

    The cameras are not damaged and the thieves even returned the SIM and Memory Cards (including all pictures of them lifting them)! I am not going to detail the circumstances in to exactly how they were returned, but please be assured they will think twice before taking another one.

    Can I please say a huge thank you to everyone for their useful comments, support and assistance in sharing it on the previous thread. This in my eyes proves how valuable these groups are and how important the members can be (even the comments on the interior of the car were correct). I am very lucky and grateful.

    It's not often that these sort of things get recovered and returned so it's really refreshing to hear a happy ending to this one!
    As has been said, there really are some good things that can come from the Internet - And this certainly is one of them!
    You must be delighted!

    Good result mate, social media does work but i would still be questioning the reason why these twats took them in the first place- Police To Me Should Still be investigating and that is where hopefully it should not happen again......Thieving BAZAARS BEWARE felix4247 is watching..........
