Not my Focus, my Escort Hatchback
They sure know how to hit ya where it hurts...
... And of all the crap in the car, they steal my stereo and nothing else...
A Clarion RDX-455 that I probably couldn't have pawned for $20.
There were some things in the car that would have been GREAT identity theft materials, several FRS radios, Handheld programmers for ATM machines, Tons and tons of expensive microfiber towels and other detailing chemicals, tools and supplies, and a few other things.
I pulled up today and noticed my driver's side door on it wasn't closed all the way. a few days ago I had been in the car and the radio was there, so I thought perhaps I didn't get it shut all the way. I nudged it to close it, and went upstairs.
Tonight I look at it, and the door isn't locked either. It was locked a few days ago but a toothpick could unlock that door, the lock is practically useless, a screwdriver or pocketknife can turn the lock. Since locks keep honest people honest I never worried too much about it until tonight. I don't know when it was stolen but it was in the last few days. I'm pretty sure that it happened before I noticed the door was slightly ajar, not after I nudged it closed this afternoon.
I'm so pissed. It was a great radio 7 years ago when I got it and put it in. It was a piece of crap stereo in a beater car that hasn't moved in a few months (needs a new clutch), but damnit, it was *MY* Piece of crap stereo, in *MY* beater car that *I* happen to like a lot.
Police report's been filed. I felt silly calling 911 and reporting a 7 year old head unit stolen, but these creeps violated me. They did also get a live mixset CD I bought at DefCon 9 that one of the Rave DJ's made. It had some really good Goa and Electro-Industrial tracks on it. It will probably be missed more than the head unit.
