STOLEN GOLD CHAIN AND DIAMOND RING RECOVERED.
Bella’s Precious Has Returned
Hi all. I was recently called out at night to do a search of bushes at a park in Ellenbrook for stolen property. The gold chain and ring had been thrown into bushes by the thief.
When I arrived a distraught Bella informed me that the gold and diamond ring had been passed down to her and that it virtually never left her house. She had been searching on hands and knees for three hours and looked somewhat relieved to see me and my metal detector. After an investigation of the facts I formed a search plan and then began a methodical search including each bush one at a time..
I had thought OMG this could be a long and frustrating search..
Luckily only the path margins were loaded with metal rubbish, so I had estimated how far a chain and ring might be thrown and started to work parallel to and about 30m out from the path, back and forth towards the path.
Good plan that as about 20 mins later.. a soft scratchy signal together with a solid tone sent me straight to my knees without even looking at the I.D Experience told me this would very likely be what I was looking for. A bit of a poke around in the leaf litter at the base of a bush with my pinpointer and BINGO! Bella’s precious chain and ring appeared in the beam of my headlamp.
I Think Bella’s Beanie Say’s It All!
I poked my head up and looked straight at Bella who was waiting anxiously on the footpath for news.. I smiled from ear to ear as we made eye contact and I slowly raised her chain and ring into view..
I stood up and bounded out of the bushes to Bella who’s tears of joy had already started to flow..
So rewarding.. And that feeling never gets old, in fact its downright addictive!
