    We also had a car break in around 4am down the street at our apartments. I didn’t see them but my neighbor (whose car was broken into) did. She says they’re the same guys and the same car.

    Same guys broke my rear window about 4:00am in 6500 block of California Ave SW.  I heard a suspicious sound, then looked out my window, next to where my car was.  Their car engine was running and when they saw me in the window, they sped out of the parking lot.

    The same thing happened to me south of the junction.  Same style too as I had “tool marks” on my window seals.  It happened in the early morning hours of the Friday the 17th.  A neighbor north of the junction found my business cards dumped and called me asking if I wanted them back.  They explained a black car was idling at 4 AM near where they were dumped.  I filed a police report.  They are likely the same thieves.  They are active and likely going to strike again.  Please rid your cars of all valuables.  I accidentally left my bag in my vehicle, which I never do, and all it took was one slip up.  Hope they catch these guys.  Wish there were more police patrols and presence in the neighborhood. Keep your eyes peeled and look after each other.  Thanks for posting this video.  Hopefully nothing irreplaceable was taken.

    Our car was broken into around 4:45am off 6300 block of Graham St morning of 3/17.  Filed a police report.  Woke up to the trunk of the car open and the passenger door ajar.  Stole golf clubs out of the trunk and went through glove box and threw papers all over inside of car.  Our neighbor’s car was also broken into.  Ring video shows a car but it’s grainy and not very helpful.  Likely the same losers.  Sorry for everyone who experienced this as well.  Apparently they can remotely access key fobs unless you have them in a protective case. Which we have now since purchased key fob shields off Amazon. 

Sorry, comment time is over.
