Pavers in Concrete?

Yesterday I had a commercial builder I work for request my opinion on the idea of setting pavers in concrete to "discourage theft." That's a new one for me.

I recommended that if he's that concerned with someone stealing the pavers that he should just pour stamped concrete in a paver pattern. I told him that pavers need to be on a proper compacted base/sand bed to perform properly.

I hate to steer a customer away from work that I do but, to me, that's the best alternative in this case.

Any thoughts? Was my advice sound?
