Pot heads stealing Range Rover LED headlights

Is there is a lesson here for Land Rover and all the LED headlight fans?

It seems that my dimly-lit round headlights on the Defender are safe . And by "safe", I mean from theft...I can't see sh*t at night!

Some things about the article don't make any sense to me. First, why would someone use led headlights (which would involve the extremely careful removal of the phosphor from the led junction to preserve the uv generating capability of the led), just to end up with something that could be replaced with grow bulbs?

Second, why are police stopping people with range rovers to check if their headlights are "legitimate"? How would that deter a crime like headlight stealing? Doesn't that just punish individuals for having aftermarket headlamps?

It's not clear to me that the police response is appropriate...in fact it seems completely disjoint from the crime.

They went into a grow op and found a few range rover headlamps some shit heel rigged up as a joke and all of a sudden 'it's an epidemic!'

Why would someone steal a pair of $2000 headlights and NOT SELL THEM and buy cheapo led lights if they wanted to make money growing and selling drugs. They just wouldn't go through the trouble and keep them, my 2 pence
