I got an email from Norfolk Police yesterday saying they have finished examining our laptop computers and asking if they could return them today. I ‘phoned back as requested and had a genial chat with the Detective Constable handling the handover.
He is on the road now and says he should arrive around mid day GMT. I hope he’s using the police Lambo, because I have stuff to do later.
I made it clear that I will sign for their return but not for their condition, which will be independently checked.
The DC said that was fine with him because they have lots of photos of the strip and rebuild which will show how careful they have been.
Glad to hear it chaps!
We will of course fit new drives and quarantine the old ones. I’ll ask the DC for a copy of the photos of the Nokia Booklet 3G strip and rebuild, because I couldn’t see any screws on the single piece of alloy forming the main chassis!
Updates after lunch.
UPDATE: 12.25pm GMT
Well, they look cleaner than when they left.
I’ve stashed them in a soundproof cupbaord with the batteries out, just to be on the safe side.
I don’t have time to write it up now, but there is more to tell about the conversation I had with the DC.
Further update asap, but I’m called away on family business (and pleasure).
