When I went out to leave for work this morning I found the driver side window of my truck smashed in and the glove box open.

There wasn't anything realyl valueable in the truck. They took a tape cassete adapter I use to play mp3s and also a ciggarete lighter power adapter. Other than that, everything was left, including a baseball bat and the big 5,000,000 candlepower spotlight I keep behind the seat.

Things like this make me want to kill.

My grandmother had her car broke into the other night for $6.00 and 2 CD's. They left a credit card and the garage door opener though.

They usually do more $$ damage than they get in loot value.

Definitly the case here. It'll cost me ~$25 to replace what was stolen. I seriously doubt they'd even be able to get anything for the things if they tried to sell them.

I should just leave the damn thing unlocked.

What a coincidence. Someone broke into my wife's truck last night. (well, she forgot to lock it) They stole my Son's nintendo DS, and rifled through everything. LEft a box of 44 Mag ammo, though.

Really pisses me off, and my son is going to be very upset when he gets home from school today.

i ran into best buy one bright sunny day thinking "i know what im after and where its at, ill be out in 5 minutes" it was 90 degrees out so i left the window down. well, i was out in 10 minutes.

open my door and notice imediatly my truck had been gone through, some papers inside the console were now on my seat. they left my Oakleys sunglasses, $300 worth of my tree climbing gear for work in the back seat, left my cd case with 30+ cds ( i assume they didnt see it under the seat )

so what DID they take you ask???

my ash tray with $6.00 +/- worth of change in it.

i would have layed out one hell of a beating for finding someone in my truck.... bash first, ask questions later. until i traded that truck in it still made me PO'd when i looked at the missing ashtray. i lock my doors habitually now.

It gets even more entertaining ...


I had the glass repaired today ... total bill $470 (I had the windshield done to because the dumbass managed to press on it somehow when rummaging around and turn a small chip into a giant crack spread across the whole windshield).

When the guys at the glass place were cleaning out the broken bits of glass ... they found ... a bluetooth cell phone headset.


NOT MINE!

The dumb bastard did $500 worth of damage, got a $5 tape cassete adapter for himself, and left behind a $40 wireless cell phone headset.


I talked to my building manager today and we're going to try to shift my parking spot around to one that I can see from my back porch. If we can do that I'll be hooking up a camera to monitor it.

I wish we had one of those "shoot in the head to protect your property" laws here.

I did file a report over the phone.

I asked them if they could send a few detectives over to look for hair for DNA analysis but they said they didn't have the resources for that. So much for tough on crime.

They did not break into my car,the snow had frozen one of my power locks so they just opened the door,i got everything back since they only had it for a short while. When the cop found the house it was 3am, he went and got a warrent and went in and recovered everything he had stolen. It did take about a month to get my property back though.

That sucks. My dad had his truck broken into last night. Oddly enough, the truck's service box was LOCKED. It had been real cold though, and my dad thinks the thieves managed to break in by breaking the ice. The door didn't look like it was broken. Two cresent wrenches were stolen.

Man do I know your pain. Some 'ganksta dawg' broke into my truck a a while back and stole my radio. They also got my 4D maglite and2 boxes of Ritz crackers (go figure). The best part is that I had a razor blade in the change tray (ash tray) and the asshole cut the shit out of his hand on it. I tried to get the detectives to do sme of that 'New Detictives' stuff on it but they "didn't have the manpower" so I guess breaking into a car is a crime that its OK to commit in America. That shit pisses me the FUCK OFF!!!!!!!!!!! I hope the dickhead died from tetnis because that blade had a bit of rust on it.....

It's not the lack of manpower, but lack of funds. No agency can afford to do $5000 DNA tests on every single case where DNA is obtained. DNA tests are reserved for crimes of high and aggravated natures (rapes, murder, etc). Not that your crime is petty. It's just the way it is. You could pay for the DNA test yourself if you want to see if that scumbag's DNA is on file. Whole lot cheaper for car owners to exterminate the perps when they find them in their vehicles. A good bullet runs about 25 cents. Of course, scumbags have more rights than hard working citizens.
Link Posted: 2/20/2006 3:38:18 PM EDT
The part that really sucks in any of these thefts/break-ins is the damage the assholes create in the process.

Causing $300.00 - $600.00 (or more), worth of replacement parts and/or labor (plus the time-off from other activities, aggravation and down time while the repairs are being made), all to steal a $100.00 CD player or pocketful of change.

Yeah I hear ya there. I guess in the big picture its not really that bad and I'd hate to think that a murderer got away because we spent the time in the DNA lab getting my radio back. The flip side of that coin is that if I did shoot the thief they would have searched to the ends of the earth to put me behind bars. Funny world huh?

Lot of them scumbags carry a screwdriver when prying out radios. A screwdriver can inflict great harm and possibly death. That is your defense.

Scavengers and animals.

As to the post above about someone taking 6 bucks in change from the ash tray - that has crackhead written all over it.

While not all of these thieves look like Dave Chapelle with the crusty, white crack lips, whenever I 'envision' them, they are. I had my car broken into twice within 3 months a few years ago in Tampa, once at work (broad daylight in parking garage with 10 other cars) and once at a TGIF's. Did I feel violated? Yeah. Did I want to find the animals that did it and violate their colon with a long, wooden handled plunger (ie, go "Haitian on their ass" ) ? Yes.

Before I die, I just hope I can catch a crash the glass thief in the act (even if its not my car). Just once.

That's what I do.
Sorry for your aggravation; I've had the same thing happen to me. They stole an orange , a broken pair of sunglasses, and one of those fake eagle feathers with a clip hanging from my inside mirror. They probably thought it was a roach clip. They looked in my wallet, but didn't take it. (That was back in the 70's, IIRC)

That doesn't work too well. When I was in college, I had $1,000 worth of damage done to an unlocked car. First they tried to pry the trunk, then they broke the window by shooting it with a pellet gun in one of the corners and pealing the tinted glass away. When the police came to file the report, I showed one of the officers that ALL FOUR doors were unlocked.

The thieves made off with a few cds that wouldn't have made them more than $40 at a pawn shop.
