Securing the Valve Stem Caps

Its the 2nd time that somebody stole all four Valve Stem Caps from my R56 wheels! Is there some way i can prevent burglars from steeling them?

I have seen valve caps that are secured with tiny grub
screws and a tiny allen key.
Think it was on ebay, sorry I can't be more specific.

I guess you could set a trap (bling comes to mind) and wait with a big hammer to smash their fingers when you spot them.

Hope they come with metal valves as I know what will happen with the aid of a Stanly blade
