  1. This guy does need to get a job. And people need to quit leaving things in their vehicle. You can’t steal what isn’t there.

    • Well, apparently he’s good at getting in and out of cars really quickly so what would that ability qualify him for? Interior Finisher at Tesla? Car Wash attendant? We’re thinking of launching a contest for “Strangest Item Ever Stolen From My Car…” Ours would be a Lab-chewed tennis ball.

      • A pair of used tennis shoes and a coin box with just nickels and pennies in it and an old gas can. Amazingly the Half Moon Bay police apprehended the suspect and returned the stolen goods to us.

          • And a donut or two… I think they were actually pretty happy to have something to do. This was way back in the 70’s when not much happened in Half Moon Bay.

  2. I have to laugh whenever I see a woman make a big show of stashing her purse in the trunk before setting out for hike or run. It’s like ringing the dinner bell for these guys. I guess they can afford to lose their stuff — I can’t!

  3. I worked as a medical courier in college. They broke into my little car and stole what I am sure what they thought were drugs – urine and stool samples.
