This is no surprise: consider it from a thiefs view: in the old days 15 years ago, for their risk and efforts they might get 5-30 used CDs and some pocket change to total maybe $50-150, and if they knew how, pry out the bulky stereo for maybe another $50, and then they needed to sell the stuff pre-craigslist through fences or pawnshops, etc. Now, based on a recent news item on the Oak Creek thefts, in a quick bash and dash, they average well over $1000 PER CAR in easily craigslist-saleable electronics. How many jobs pay thousands per night of "work"? Just as leaving your meat-filled ice-chest in your car around Yosemite bears invites a break-in, so does leaving an electronic treasure. We cannot expect the police will never be able to stop this, just as we would not expect the rangers to stop the bears. Get smart people, lock your cars and take your items with you.
@simple math: AMEN! I cannot fathom why anyone would leave a clearly visible laptop or tablet in their car.
Apt comparison, thieves and animals. Objectionable content?
