heads up!!!
A co-worker just told me that his truck got broken into yesterday. 3:00 in the afternoon at Corino's at 151/410 .

In broad daylight these thugs busted out his driver side window (after trying to pop the lock with no luck). They went thru the glovebox and console, all they got off with was a GPS which had just blown up the day before hahaha.

This makes me sooooo mad!!! I wish he would have caught them in the act, it would not have been pretty!!!

It's that time of the year - the crooks have to "shop" for their loved ones too, you know.

This is true. My boss says he left his locked in a laptop case under his backseat, but still, I wouldnt risk leaving my laptop in my vehicle no matter how well hidden.

Common sense.....

Yep, that was the first thing I asked him, "was it in plain sight?".

I don't leave ANYTHING in my vehicle. When I'm shopping, if I have more than one place to go then I drive my truck and everything gets locked in the toolbox.

But I still think it is a shame, thieves **** me off!!

I've always wondered about how these people don't get seen in very busy parking lots.

Even though they didn't make off with anything its still going to cost $100-$200 to get the window replaced.

No one even pays attention to the alarms going off in the parking lots anymore. It's no wonder they get away with it. Maybe we should all start looking when we hear one go off. treat everyone like it's someone we know, not be such strangers in life.

The hot place now is collage campus. Looking for laptops I guess.

I can't remember if I posted this here or not. A month or so ago my tires and wheels were stolen during the night and my vehicle was parked in my driveway 3 ft from my kitchen door. They brought their own landscape bricks to leave it on. They picked up a rubber ball off of the driveway, cut a slice in it and put it over the motion detector to keep the light from coming on.

A week or two later, they did the same thing with our neighbor two houses down.

I know they weren't in the house but it was still kind of scary. Now, every morning I go look to see if I still have tires and wheels. I've been told since then that they are targeting 20" wheels.
