    I parked my car at the mall for twenty mins and someone tried to steal it! They ripped out my ignition! Now its in the shop and I have a rental! It was a circus dealing with mall security, police and insurance for 3 hours in the sun! Yesterday was not my day!

    I was at Hancocks a few ago. There is nothing around this store...nothing. I was in there about 20 minutes or so and when i came out, my car had been broken into. They used a screwdriver to break my keyhole thingy and took my GPS. The police said they are seeing this a lot more. But even the cop was surprised it happened at a fabric store of all places!

    Sorry this happened. Hope all works out for you.

    I am so sorry. Some people can be real jerks. Surely the mall had a nice cool office they could have used.

    I want to rig up some kind of electric shock to my car when I have to go into St. Louis County but hubby won't let me. Not enough to really hurt anyone but enough to make them go away! I would be happy to put a sticker on the car announcing my anti-theft device but hubby is sure an illiterate or blind crack-head with an ambulance chasing lawyer would be the one that gets shocked & we'd be in trouble for not making the sign audible and/or in Braille.

    Love this!!
    Sorry to here about your car.
    Our daughter borrowed our car and took it to Philly on a trip. Someone popped the passenger door lock and took a piece of junk computer. I had to put a whole new door on. Stupid people.

    What a terrible thing to have happen. It's so expensive getting bits and pieces fixed, not to mention the outrage that someone messed with your property. Sadly a sign of the times. Hope they up security, even just cameras.

    There seems to be an increasing lack of morals in our society. People just aren't being brought up right anymore--no guidance, no discipline. It's sad.

    Last month in our (very quiet) neighborhood we had 6 cars damaged by two guys trying to steal them. The excuse they gave: one of them's girl friend needed a ride to Ohio! They caused a lot of damage like yours to the ignitions and dashboards. Problem is, all these cars have car alarms and not one of them went off! At least they caught the guys but they don't have money to pay for all the damage they did. Question: what good are car alarms if they didn't go off on any of the cars?????

    Sorry that happened. Glad they didn't get the vehicle and very glad you didn't walk up on them.

    Remember though - Locks are for honest people!
