    How stupid can you be to leave anything in your car and then not lock the doors. With most cars it takes one click to lock the car doors.

    I am one of the folks who was hit. Nothing was taken here (not that we have much of anything to take anyway), just papers in dash was strewn around.Our vehicles are way back from the rd behind our house and the dog never barked. She’s usually right on it! This was always a peaceful and trouble free area, til lately! My Husband doesn’t lock his doors because if nothings inside, at least they can open the door and see, rather than cause us to have to pay for a broken window. I’m afraid someones really gonna get hurt doing that mess out here. To many of these country boys carry guns and would shoot them in a second to protect what they worked hard for.
