    Well.......it has finally happened.

    Just got broken into AGAIN. This is the 2nd time in 2 months, and THIS time they got all my equipment. They even got all the wiring and everything.

    Looks like they broke into the back hatch of my Pathfinder, climbed over all the seats and popped the hood, at which point they dented the hood while ripping off my battery cables (breaking them in the process) to shut off my alarm.

    This left them with a lot of time to work with and did they ever work....everything was taken, lcd, computer, all wiring, consoles, even my change drawer was ripped out because they were going thru the fuse panel to see what was hooked up to it (nothing thank god), then they pulled up the carpets and grabbed all the wiring from the front to the back, etc..etc..

    The only thing they didn't seem to find was the power inverter and it was the easiest to find.......basically right out in the open. All my other stuff was hidden away from site and locked up, they broke or pulled apart all the areas where my carputer stuff was.

    Even some areas of my interior were damaged.....some plastic trim, some seat damage etc..etc...a long with the big dent in my hood and the TOTALLY ripped apart lock on my hatch that also has received a LOT of scratches on.

    This leads me to believe that it was someone in the apartment building where I live......this is the 5th break-in I have had here....I AM NOT PLEASED!!!! All break-ins up to this point there pretty much has been NOTHING stolen, including CDs (even this time I had 10 cds in my vehicle and none were stolen), but this time I guess they finally found what they had been looking for all along (not that there was any sign of this stuff in there, other than them watching me pull my screen in and out).

    I have gotten so ****ed at the cops, that this time I am DEMANDING they do a fingerprint analysis on my vehicle and I will be finding out tomorrow if they will in fact do one....all I can say is if they don't then I'm not sure what in the hell my taxes are going too and will possibly go to the media. I mean really what is the point of all this...... I will get an insurance claim, go replace all my stuff, to what???? have it all stolen in another month of 2???

    I guess the next thing I will have to do is look into a pager alarm, so I will know when they are breaking in, cause this time I found out that my manager actually heard the alarm going off at 4AM for like 1/2 hour and decided not to do anything about it. At least if I was paged I could call the cops or go down there and scare them off or something.

    Anyways, that is my rant, I needed to get this all off my chest cause like I said above, I AM ****ED. Thanks all, and if anyone has any tips on how to stop this that would be great. Just keep in mind.... I do live in a nice area, in a nicely upkept apartment building....this is not the slums by any means. And I did have alarms and everything was locked inside and 100% out of sight.

    Peace.

    You know, SuperCircuits has great deals on little cameras.

    When I was in high school, somebody kept egging my house. We thought it was someone that my sister had ****ed off, because we were the only ones this was happening to. So I set up a camera in my window pointed towards the street and recorded from 12:30am to 6:30am every night.

    One morning, there was a dead possum in the back of my truck. I ran inside and checked the tape, and it was someone that I had ****ed off. I never thought that someone would be that stupid, because I had a reputation in high school for being a little, um, psychopathic.

    Anyway, after I, er, confronted, the people in question we never had any problems again.

    and then they moved to illinois .

    But, back to the point -> get a camera if you think it's someone in your complex. You can do like me and get a small one that no one will ever see, or you can get a big security camera that may serve as a deterrent (but you will never catch who has been breaking into your ride or get to use your powers of persuasion to get your stuff back--the tapes are only good legally for the incident they record, nothing prior).

    That's exactly what I was going to say. You can't park your car close enough so that you can hear your alarm? If not, I suggest getting a louder alarm and one that will call you and say, "Grab a bat and run to your car!"

    Sorry orangewhip, I'd hate to be in your position. Keep an eye out and ask the neighbors whose windows face your car if they saw anything. Remind them that their cars can be broken into just as easily as yours was. Do your apartments have garages? If so, pay the extra $50/month to keep your car safe. Your idea of getting an alarm that will page you is the best idea, imo.

    Man that has got to suck, i'd be wanting to rip there throats out! It has to be someone who lives near you, if they took everything, and it wasn't visible from the outside.

    I agree with the pager alarm, my next alarm will have one thats for sure! So if my alarm goes off, i can grab the nearest hard object and make my way towards my car.

    Theives are one of the lowest scum on this earth!

    ps. does your insurace cover your system?

    Damn, that really sucks. Heh, its reading things like this that makes me parinoid. Will your insurance cover everything? Including the "time and labour"? And yeah, if they took the time to strip out all the wiring and bits and pieces of your carpc setup, they would have had to seen you working on it, so Id wager someone in the area.

    I've had those ideas. One was where I'd have a M4A1 pointed out every window, and if the car alarm goes off, everyone in a two mile radius better duck.

    Hmmm, sounds better and better everytime.
