  1. OK, What sort of Opportunistic CRIMINALS just ‘Happen to be right there at the appropriate time’ to Steal a Mobile Phone – a Backpack and a 250cc motorcycle ???
    Especially at 2:00AM – The Rider pulled over to ‘Check Directions’ on his mobile Phone Map APP – and JUST then 2 BADDIES – ROBBERS with a ‘Sawn Off Shotgun’, happen to APPEAR out of Nowhere, Just to ROB & STEAL –
    NAH! Sorry IJust Don’t buy it – IT Smells a BIG BIT FISHY to me – INSURANCE JOB MAYBE ???

    Apologies IF it is TRUE, But Really, C’mon, Just sounds like the biggest CROCK of you know what – to me …
