    Do not know the spelling, Perona? north of Paris.. I have spoken to the couple.. they had a dog ... slept 11 hours.. neither of them sleep that long and they we broken in to along with trailer tent and a static bungalow plus there motor home.. his wallet and cash plus phone but not the credit cards. Had no headache but as said slept 11 hours (both) something they never do and also the dog.

    Now this is the first person I have spoken to that has made the claim that it happened to them.. not a friend of the fifth cousin etc.,

    I have no reason not to believe him.. what he tells me seems to add up.

    must agree Bob.. no doubt about the theft.. but gassing ?

    . more likely they had one or two many sherberts the night before..

    My thoughts

    My thoughts as well.. I did ask if they had any headaches .. both said no... Sue was speaking to the lady and I spoke to the chap.. we were at different ends of the RV.. same story.

    But it is the nearest I have got to someone that claims it happened to them.

    When I have a chat next with them, I will see if anything can be added to the claim.

    even on an operating table anaesthetics have to be monitored and constantly applied during a long operation.

    even if they slept normally for the first 8 hours then were 'gassed', that's still 3 hours of unmonitored anaesthetic with absolutely no after effects.

    and i'm sorry, but enough anaesthetic to put them under would have killed the dog without doubt.

    load of bollocks and I bet they have fairies at the bottom of their garden as well.

    or are you just bored Bob :Wink:

    So the only 'evidence' of it being a gassing attack is that they slept longer than normal?

    Would YOU take the case, Bob? :BigGrin::Wink:

    Bob, when you say broken into, what signs? smashed window? did they leave doors unlocked? if not just how did the naughty people get in? On a site or wild camping?

    How is my interest.

    This is already a case of someone who met someone, not a first hand account at all. You cannot answer all the questions already posed as it was not you that it happened to.

    Sounds like someone adding 2+2 and getting something other than what we all know it should be.

    Nice one Buttons, that point goes to you... 23'9" I would remind everyone.. as I am selling it.. just a European size motor home (exclude VW's.. they are matchbox cars).

    Jenny, Buttons does not need any help from you...:Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1:.... he is more than capable as we know of starting a bun fight on here. :Wink:

    But honest Jenny it is small for an RV... :Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1:

    Buttons was speaking to the lady and I spoke to the chap.. we were OUTSIDE of the VW.. same story.:Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1:
    The concept of two different conversations taking place at once inside is alien to Buttons

    You want first hand you got it
    Pammy very light sleeper (her own description)
    Me Normal to heavy sleeper (my own description)

    We were robbed in France
    RV broken into 2am ish
    Habitation door lock destroyed entry failed due to deadlock
    Driver door lock destroyed and entry gained, cash only stolen
    credit cards left in the wallet, wallet left on floor robbers disturbed and seen fleeing from our RV
    We Both slept through it like babies, no gas ,no headaches, no alcohol to speak of, well two of the small french bottles
    You sleep very much sounder than you think,
    it took a few mins of our mobile ringing to wake us up for our friends to tell us we'd been done over
    Dead locks Dead locks, and with the help of Jims staying safe security advise
    tis the only way:thumb:

    First....sorry second time I've ever heard of thieves taking the time to examine the contents of a wallet or handbag at the scene of crime. Usually they just snatch and run and dump unwanted items at their leisure.
    Must be a new breed of discerning tea-leaves on the loose. :BigGrin:
