Stolen Car, Yak, rods, Go Pros - Coffs Recovered

On my way to going Bassing this morning 4:45am I had my car stolen from Boambee East just south of Coffs Harbour.

The car was a white 2001 Toyota Corolla Hatch back (BGS 26G) and it had a brown/camo coloured viking espri on the roof racks (with blue tie downs) and a bunch of tackle inside (shimano sustain / Samaki Allure and Curado / Pen pin point combos) and 2 go Pro cameras.

If by any remote chance some one sees it please PM me or give Coffs Harbour police a call on (02) 6691 0799

I'll post a few pics of what the yak looks like shortly.

Here is what the yak looks like

There certainly are some dead set fkn assholes in this world This absolutely sucks and I hope you
somehow get your stuff back, good luck in the search
Cheers mate,

The car was recovered today, still with the kayak, just minus my rods and camera gear.

Its with the authorities now.
great result lets hope the cops find something to lead them to the culprits
I've been told recently about some guys in a huge white van that drive around and follow cars with kayaks or bikes.

Allegedly they simply follow you, wait for you to stop at a servo or what ever, cut your straps and simply throw the yak in the van and drive off.

Worth bearing in mind.
Thanks for the tip Phoenix, I will take note of your thoughts. I have a PA 12 on a 3 Bar roof rack. I think I will try & lock it onto the bars through the pedal gunwale. Any way it was good to see the yak and car recovered.
