Anybody else ever had a tree stolen?!

I’m just reeling from having a potted Japanese Maple “Bloodgood” which I’ve spent a lot of time working on (there’s a thread about it on this forum) stolen from my front garden after all that repotting into a really nice free draining mix and root maintenance back in late Winter. Not to mention the religious program of seaweed root feeding. Stolen - along with the pot. Absolutely gutted!
Tempted to put a camera out there.
Some people are such sh*ts aren't they?
Apparently, it's more common that people think - especially bigger specimens in big pots, although you'd think that would deter them. There was a talk about it on one of the radio shows a few years ago, and it was quite unbelievable. They come equipped and ready for the job.
Worth checking local events, as @Topbird says, but I'm not sure how you would prove anything.
Cameras are also worth checking, but to be honest, unless you get a car reg, and good pix, it's a waste of time. Police don't seem to be interested either unless you're being murdered in your bed. They hardly bother when luxury cars are stolen, let alone anything else
Sorry - that was a bit negative.
I live in west central Scotland - not where that photo is...
