Sorry your burb got broken into. That sucks, no matter what they took.

Park somewhere else. They might be back.

My '87 C10 pick-up became a recurring target for the kids in my neighborhood. They broke in and took my alpine the first time. Then broke in two other times. Stole my mag-lite flashlight, and the next time seemed to just break in just because they could. I finally traded that truck in, just so they would stop targeting it. Besides it was time for something newer. :wink:

I guess I was thinking "park it at a nearby friends house, or something.

Did they cause much damage?

Sorry to hear that. I have a funny feeling they'll be back. Watch what you have in there for the next few weeks.

They just needed something inside the door for their truck, something must have spooked them before they got what they needed.

At least that’s what it sounds like. If they didn’t take anything else.

Sorry to hear that it happened to you.

Just got started?

Sounds to me like they just got started stealing your whole system and got spooked, if that is the case, they will be back. Had almost the same thing happen to me, so much the same it is spooky. Get a wildlife camera that is motion activated with no flash and when they get in your car with the dome light on you will get there picture or you can put it in a window of your house or somewhere like that. then you got the little punks! My buddy next door just happend to be up for a 2am peepee one night and looked out on the driveway to find a couple of kids in his truck taking appart his dash, so he called me and I came over and we walked up behind them with my shot gun, racked a round and waited for the police while they begged me not to shoot them while face down in the dirt! Hopefully that scared them enough not to do it again.

Bless the Second Amendment... Sorry you got broken into... same thing happened to me a coupla years back. Almost the same exact story, broke in, left a mess, and missed the valuable stuff.

I guess that "quality is job 1" for some thieves

Years ago I had a pioneer stolen from the dash of my TR-7. The thieves were not subtle. It looked like they took a hatchet to my dash and a crowbar to my door panels. Gone in 60 seconds! I think I would prefer thieves who take the time and exercise some patience when stealing my stuff.

P.S. No limey car jokes please.:lol:
