Apologies. I see it's been discussed on another page.
They only had £200 in cash and £300 worth of jewellery. Am sure the people responsible for this atrocity are feeling a bit peed off they went to all that trouble and only caught poor campers.
It was £500 in cash in the Sun.
Why do people carry £300 (or any other figure) of jewellery on a month trip in a motorhome.
I don't possess any jewellery, and SWMBO who has tons, only takes her rings(which would require surgery to remove), and a few costume jewellery necklaces worth nearer £3
Why does she look ten years older then him, and he's reported as being ten years older then her......Or is he the one wearing the frock??
Tomorrow in the Express it will be £1000-00
And Sunday Telegraph it will be Millions of £££££££££££`s...
I just don`t know who to believe...
So, Mo..... What you are saying is they will actually be worth robbing by Sunday?
Quick!! I know a couple of Eastern Europeans who work for British Gas..........
I`m thinking of selling my M.Home and buying a tent...
At least I will hear the zip being undone..
Do they make a 14 room tent???
Daughter-in-law's parents camping on a five-star site in France last summer had their tent cut whilst they were asleep - wallet and purse with cash and cards stolen. No gas involved though!
I don't understand how sufficient gas could be injected into an area of around 12cub metres to the level to put people to sleep and not kill them.
It takes very skilled anaesthetists to carry out this task in hospitals etc and yet a bunch of Eastern European tea leaves can do the same work through a vent into a camper van , mmmmm
It's just an excuse for getting pi**ed, going to bed with the door unlocked, realising it in the morning, and jumping at the chance of turning a ten bob watch into a Rolex Oyster for the insurance company, by getting the local Sheriff to back your case.
I'm pretty sure this is 2 separate cases the one with £500 cash in the sun involved a motorhome but the one in the daily mail mentions the thieves entering through patio doors ....there's been several stories over the years involving hijackings etc
I think it's a tourism plan to encorouge people to use campsites
I think you will find that it depends on the type of gas used as to how they identify it. I have been producing gas for a number of years and according to my wife, it is a type of gas not known on planet earth. So in her opinion the story could well be true.
Don't want it to be true or think it is , but all these stories wouldn't it be good if someone could come on here and say yes it was me , we have the canister , the police have caught them it is such and such gas and we are stil here not blown up just gassed

Statement by the Royal College of Anaesthetists.
This seems to happen in places like service stations more often than in the normal Aires . I did read somewhere a while ago about 3 caravans having been robbed while the occupants slept in a campsite in Peronne but no mention of gas. Personally we would never stay overnight in a service station and when we are in Aires or unsecure campsites we always alarm before bedtime . We also have really good hiding place for passports and credit cards and only carry one card and a little cash when out and about . We leave jewellery and good watches in a safe at home and use cheaper alternatives on our travels . So far so good .
Probably used about £500 of gas.........
In reality, its a good way to claim back on your insurance if you've overspent in the first week
