    When I've had stuff taken, it's been done by someone on foot, either alone or as a pair. The thieves have turned out to live nearby....allowing them to get back indoors with the stuff before the police arrive.

    Well I've looked at my area quite a few times and with considerable disbelief at the figures on show....

Most people carry mobile phones with an integrated camera - use these to take photographs of anyone strange to your area - you never know when it could come in handy. Thefts have been reported on the border of Southport towards Birkdale area - check all your sheds and ensure you lock all windows, let neighbours know when you are going away so that they can watch over your property.
    Sounds very similar to this post.

With the younger ones, they separate and move away from an area and recombine within the hour. The older people noticed move from street to street. If anyone has noticed - take photographs of them on your phone and be sure that they see you. If they are innocent, it will not bother them.
    Areas where these have been seen include Shakespeare Street, Duke Street,Bannistre Road,Railway Street, The Walk,Upper Aughton Road,Part Street, Cross Street etc.,

    Use a decent DSLR with a telephoto lens that takes raw images and you can see into the shadow of the hoodie as well when you process it.

    As a slight aside, I've seen loads of videos from security cameras, barely one of them would allow for decent facial recognition.
    Good cameras are cheap and digital storage is cheap too - why are security cameras still so cra**y?
