Just witnessed a car break in AGAIN. how do I stop this?
    #11329216 - 10/27/09 03:03 AM (8 years, 28 days ago)

just a few minutes ago I was laying here in bed and heard the distinct sound of a vehicle window shatter. I poke my head out my apartment(3rd floor) which happens to overlook an alley where cars are always getting broken into, and see a silver car drive away with some dick face trying to lay down in the back seat to hide. I stay out the window and a few minutes later a different car pulls behind the broken car and some dude hops out and opens up the car, grabs some random shit, and hops out. I then proceed to shout out "YO!!!" at a volume loud enough for him to hear, and he takes a right down the alley intersection(the alley makes a T shape).

I personally have gotten my previous vehicles broken into at least 5 times and got stolen/recovered twice. That is the main reason as to why I choose not to own a vehicle anymore, and damn it is such a bummer noticing fresh broken glass on the curb every other night. This happens waaaay too fucking much and I don't know why somebody(building management or cops) doesn't just install a camera on the side of the building. I am ready to just pop some fucking heads off, hopefully send a warning to the rest of them!

any clever tips to catching these guys? it happens very frequently and has been going on for 3 years to my knowledge.

Gonna wait it out.
If there were no desire to heal The damaged and broken met along
This tedious path I've chosen hereI certainly would've walked away by now.
And I still may ... (sigh) ... I still may.Be patient.
I must keep reminding myself of this.

on who the guys long gone? well he could have gotten a license plate number seeing as they were dumb and drove a car.

i used to hit up appt complexs in my younger douchbag days, i am far past this, and feel bad for what i did, but here's the deal, protect your shit!

people who know what they're doing won't break your window loudly. an easily obtainable window puncher from the hardware store is baisically silent.
car's with sunroofs are essentially open doors, pryable w/ a crowbar, and don't set off alarms unless you shake the car hard jumping in. it seems most people never discovered this, but we would search specifically for this as it didnt cause too much damage, which we did for some reason care about, and we could easily get the goods and get out. cameras, are terrible evidence, as of course we would have masks on and gloves.

if your car had a bright blue light spinning lighting up your car, WHICH ALOT OF PEOPLE HAVE, your car is checked off as NO THANK YOU to a theif. an intelligent theif also would not bust a window on a car they knew had an alarm. most will search for cars pre 95-90.

not owning something for fear of something happening to it is a terrible excuse.

own a newer car, put a REAL alarm in it, and park it out your window.
you can also purchase alarms that will call your mobile device.
get a stereo with a removable faceplate
take all items out of visible sight, wallets etc. if you have a wallet visible i would bop your window because BAM INSTANT CASH, don't gotta push those stereos. theifs can outrun your alarms.
no visible items, no visible NICE STEREO, and a theif will have no reason to pick your car out of the sea.
the nicer your car, the more intimidated a theif will be.
they don't wanna get in your car just kuz, THEY WANT SOMETHING

don't give the opportunity. retrieved stolen goods is practically 0%

It's the only legal thing to do.

If you shoot them or attack then you'll probably get arrested too.

good advice, but the last time my car got stolen, it was directly out my window. They caught the chick(YES, A FUCKING CHICK!) and apparently she had some sort of "makeshift key", the officer tells me. I always take my valuables with me and only once left my brothers ipod on the front seat and BAM!..it got stolen that very night.

These guy's play dirty.


**OH and here is another funny note, if I forgot to mention. The car that got broken into had an alarm and it was going off the whole time. Didn't seem to spook these guys.

You head over to google.com
Look up peak oil, sustainability, local food, etc....
Take your pick.

And focus on real problems.
Or just focus on petty crime and auto theft until it's too late.
Good Luck. :wink:

I live in a very small town. We have a bad time with petty theft around here.
We've had our pharmacy broken into, a couple other businesses, 33 burglaries a couple months ago.
I'm not so familiar with the big city, but I remember watching this show where they put cameras inside cars to catch the thieves. Car alarms don't do much.

Whatcha think would get peoples attentions faster a car alarm that sounds like a normal car alarm or a car alarm that screams fire?

You'd be arrested yourself if you shot anyone. There really isn't too much you can do but keep telling the cops. Around here, there is a case going on where a guy saw his car getting broken in to so he grabbed a bat and hit the other guy in the face while he was attempting to get away. They both got arrested.

Get an old car and cover the seats and floor boards with gasoline. Make some kind of remote sparking device. Put an a dummy iPod, cell phone, and laptop in the car, but screw them to the floor board or center console. When they are trying to pry the decoys from the car, set off the remote sparking thing. I bet they'll tell all their friends how they were breaking into a car then it blew up on them. They'll probably think twice after that.
