Hanging out at my parents place after work and my sister comes in the door saying some guys were just scoping out my car and looking in the windows. Well now there's two teenagers with the local police departments looking for them for the rest of the night. ****ing kids...

This is why I always lock my doors with the key fob, no one is using those door handles to gain access into the car.

Yeah I was pleased with the response time too. No more than five minutes later and there were two patrol cars from one department and one from another. Plus I was ticked so I drove around as well since I grew up here I know where everything is. Will they find them? Probably not but at least they came through.

2 words... Dark Tint...

Just got mine. I keep laptops, important papers and stuff back there. I didn't really want 20% tint... More like 35%... But I like making sure nobody can see in to see what I have there.

wait... I was thinking they stole your car and you just forgot to mention it.

There were people looking into your car windows and you called the cops? I'm sure they're working hard looking for those young non-criminals.
Lol +1 , it'd be funny if they were just admiring your car.

WTF! You called the cops for kids looking at your locked car!?

I'm surprised the cops didn't arrested you for wasting their time!

What were they Black and Latino kids in an all White neighborhood? Is that why the cops even bothered with this......


Fail!

o_O with a history of vehicles being broken into or vandalized, when two kids take off running into the night i'm gonna call. i'm not asking for an investigation, just presence.

they're tinted but not that dark. would've sucked if they busted a window for a paintball backpack full of school work

I hate it when people look in the windows of my car. I usually call the police on them as well.

...You called the cops because someone was looking into your car? Is that even a crime? And what does "This is why I always lock my doors with the key fob, no one is using those door handles to gain access into the car" mean? What difference does it make how you lock the door?

when you lock the car with the key fob, all of the door handles are inactive. set a friend in your car and try it.

a crime? no. gray area? yes. looking into someone else vehicle on their property at night time and then running off when noticed.
