Monmouth County crooks steal some REALLY dumb stuff
They finally nabbed the bad guys who they believe are the ones who committed a rash of car burglaries in Monmouth County, especially in Ocean Township.
I had heard about this rash of break-ins and I really didn't have to change my behavior because I never leave anything in my car and I always leave it unlocked. I'd rather people just root around in my car looking for something and finally realize that I've got nothing good to steal than have them break the windows for the same end result.
I think that's probably a good idea for most people; Take your stuff out. Leave the door open. But I had to learn this lesson the hard way. Living in New York, I had had my car windows broken several times even though there was nothing in the car to steal.
So last summer, my car was parked and unlocked as usual and little did I know, there was actually something that somebody wanted in there. It was the dumbest thing that anybody has ever had stolen from them.
