“I was talking with a farmer recently who had his jeep stolen. He told me that the biggest thing for him was that when he was down in the yard his daughter used to follow him,” says Joe Healy. “At the back of his mind he was thinking: ‘Are they watching even when my daughter and my other kids are coming down to the yard?’”

“The security you feel in your own place comes into question. When you have been burgled that is taken away. He said to me that is a lot more difficult to get over than the theft of the jeep.”
