Same happens regularly here in SA.
Bloke had a delivery round with a pantec truck and used to deliver kitchens to new homes.
The builders couldnt work out how they were getting pinched usually the day after they were delivered, until one night after a kitchen delivery they camped in the house next door and caught the delivery bloke nicking everything and doing cash jobs on the side
Just goes to show that the apple never falls far from the tree. Scum
Seriously, they should shoot this feral element of society, not lock them up for a few months or worse, home detention. Where I'm working tomorrow, I've been told to ensure my van is locked up and work inside the house and lock myself inside due to the scum that lives in the area always knocking tradies tools off and stealing all the copper plumbing and wiring. I arrived onsite at a nice area 2 weeks ago and the house was trashed. The kitchen and nearly every inside wall and door was damaged after they gained entry through a hole they made in the roof in the carport. Nothing stolen, just senseless vandalism
