Unfortunately and sadly enough, the coat is enough to get someone to break into the car. Maybe that is what they went for when they stumbled on to the guitar. Like I always tell my wife do NOT leave anything not even a paper bag in plain sight, because a crook will be curious enough to find out what is in that bag. I try not to give them any excuse. Let's face it, these are not you mom and dad's days of growing up.

Based on the information they collected, they are convinced that a punk was walking down our street breaking into cars one by one.

So, while the cautions suggested in this thread are good advice, I unfairly accused the State Fair.
How could you not know when someone broke into the car? Was it unlocked?

I was about to respond to the OP that your car can be broken into in front of your very own home, much less a parking lot at the State Fair or anywhere else for that matter. Then a few posts down the OP said it looks like the car was broken into in front of their home. I'm not saying it's a laughing matter, but it was certainly ironic.

We're not usually watching the car at 3:00 in the morning, which is when the police said the vandalism occurred. I commented that the car must have been left unlocked. The officer said not necessarily so. According to his experience, a "jimmy" bar can pop a car door open in seconds and leave no sign of forced entry. Also, the particular model of car is particularly prone to the electric door locks locking the doors but then returning to the unlocked position when the remote door lock button is pressed on the FOB.

So, who knows?
