    Although if this guy is as much of a PITA as suggested you won't be the only one who is fed up, so a neighbour on the other side may well oblige, especially if you suggest putting a wireless camera in so it just needs power.

    Sadly the car-park is right on the corner of our flat (Ground level). The bedroom doesn't overlook it (I can see, but I have to open the window and really lean out) and the only one that I can get a view from is the toilet window.

    There are 2 trees overlooking it, but Douchbag Jnr likes to feed the birds there.I want to trap someone...with evidence or a bear-trap. I'm not fussy.-artists-sketch.bmp

    The only thing I can think of is to get a camera in that tree - he lives to the left/above my flat. If I put one there, I can see him during the day and can see him going back in. But not sure how to get power to it or how to get it working at night. If I put it in my car, there's no guarantee I'll get a decent pic/proof.

    Bear traps and claymores may win out the day here, but I'll settle for proof at this point.

    That camera link I sent you is battery powered and should easily last a day or more. You just need a micro SD card for storage. Should be easy enough to use. It has a night mode and These are usually pretty good as infra red LEDs give out an awful lot of light!

    Put the CCTV camera in the car perhaps? A WiFi model even, so it could send image to your flat?

    The car won't give me the best angle - I basically want to see him damage the left-side (All the damage is done there, because he thinks I can see him), and the run away to his flat.

    I'll keep that camera in mind - will try see if I can get one that's wireless. Wouldn't put it past that hobbit f*ck to try and climb the tree to steal it - at least if it's wireless I can record it onto the laptop.

    Does he have a car - may I suggest you borrow it and return it to him like this:

    what you want is a wireless camera used to film wildlife, you can attach to the tree and it will work in the dark.

    Why don't you ask @JAB1a for some tips on a FPV Quadcopter - the hobbit would sh*t himself!

    FPV Quadcopter - now...that's tempting. Pop a small deodorant can with a lighter, and I have me some fun!
    Alas neither one of them have a car. Or a job. Or life.

    I think I'll take @ICTDirect_Dave's advice and get that camera - I've found a nice hedge/scrub over the wall which gives me a nice view of the place. Failing that, there's a power distributor-type-outhouse on the opposite side where I can pop the camera on the roof and get a decent view of all the flat entrances.

    So he knows that the police were called on the other guy?
    I would start by putting a note through his door stating that you are investigating the issue of car damage etc by using all means at your disposal, and you will be passing information you obtain onto the police.
    I know it is a long shot, but given that he knows you HAVE called the police before, it might just make him back off a bit.

    Go to the cinema and book a nice long relaxing film (keep reciept).
    Dont see film but instead wear a (borrowed) crash helmet and beat him to within and inch of his life.
    Try to catch the ending of the film.

    Do try to see the film so that you can explain the story should anyone ask.
    Return helmet.
    Without proof or positive identification, plod cant do anything.

    Sometimes, the old ways are the best.
    (alternatively get a friend to do the deed and watch the film.)

    ANPR would record the car travelling to/from the cinema at odd times. Cinema booking systems will also record a late collection time and cinema CCTV would record someone entering the film late.

    I would take a lot of care in your camera placement, as you wouldn't want your neighbours to make a formal complaint regarding an invasion of privacy etc. especially if the camera isn't mounted on your property.

    Is their someone (or company/committee) who is responsible for the car parks maintenance? Maybe you could make a case for a new combination lock to go on the car park gates which everyone can know the code to (and more importantly can be given to the emergency services over the phone), and maybe some security lights and/or cameras.

    Tempted to dob him in as Al-Qaeda's Tubby English Brigade... we did have a problem with one of the flats with a certain drug user who was very unpleasant. Various anon calls were made about his dealing/using (Wasn't 100% sure) - then the police did a raid a few days later and found a nice sizable stash. Haven't seen him in a year.

    At the moment there's only 4 flats at the back enterance - once has a camera trained on his front door as he's a nasty piece of work and he's upset a lot of people (Came home one night and found two people kicking his door and threatening him) - so I can't see any problems with me popping a camera up. I spent an hour having a look around the car park and surrounding areas to find a nice concealed spot to place it and where it'll give me a good view and found about 2-3 places. The favourite is on the college building next to us (It's a bungalow next to our building).
