Wheels and axles stolen

Not quite rib related but along similar lines.

Some time over the weekend one of the scout groups that use our club had the wheels and axles includung brake units taken from one of their canoe trailers they keep on site. The trailer is a large braked trailer worth a fair amount and is only a couple of years old.

Who ever helped them selves obviously came for a specific thing. There must of been a few of them to lift it as the trailer itself is pretty heavy even with out the 8 kayaks and 5 canoes on it! They've taken all nuts and bolts etc and disconnected the brake cable where it splits for each wheel and taken everything that attaches the wheels to the chasis of the trailer including the two wheel clamps that were on the wheels!

My only thought is that it could be some gypo that needs some new wheels for his run down caravan!

Reported it to the police but they weren't really interested.

Or they wanted to nick something more valuable that's got the same wheels but someone's removed them?
