This happened- not in this area -but fairly recently.
A relative was spat at and she chased the spitter and found her getting into a car. The reg was passed to the cops and they tried to follow it up but did not find the spitter at home (where the car was registered)on 2 occasions so they visited my relative and told her and left a piece of paper with details on it.....
p.s for the benefit of rh it is the absolute truth

Of course as a student you need a laptop and mobile.

I wouldn't have thought, however, you needed the most expensive kind, and Macs and iPhones are top end aka luxury end, no?

My mistake. I haven't got my head fully round the differences between iThingies yet. It's only fairly recently I got William and Henry^WHarry sorted.

In Dock Green, PC Dixon would of course have been having a knock on their door anyway, for a quiet chat. I don't think there's any law preventing the Met from doing that. I can imagine it possibly having some benefits, but also being seen as otherwise -- ie v. unlikely to lead to a charge, and would put the possible perps more on their guard.

Checking the local full electoral register for the names of the occupiers might be productive. Have there been any more recent sightings of the goods?

In my opinion Art degrees are slightly different I'm afraid!

Good idea! I walked past the house in question a few times this morning to suss it out. I managed to speak to the next door neighbours who said they rarely saw the people who lived their. Chickened out of knocking on the door or anything like that but checked the surrounding areas for the hard drive- wishful thinking right!

This might be the answer!

The moral of this whole tale is ‘crime does pay’
The police are not interested in crime as they are unable to cope do so it seems
Criminals have a free hand. Consequently insurers will take your money
But in many (most) cases will not pay out.

It seems outrageous when a bit of investigation could resolve things but
It wont happen.

Bit of a blanket statement to say that the police aren't interested in crime. Now I am not a fan of the filth, many of the rozzers that I have come across are racist, narrow minded, little Englanders, worse still living in West Wickham, but I am sure that most are interested in nabbing crims.
