So for the 3rd time in over a year, we've had the cars in our driveway cased and broken into. Here's a video of the first time that it happened in may last year:
The first time, a car door was left unlocked and the scumbags just opened the door and got a few pairs of sunnies. Since then, we've kept the doors locked.
However, it doesn't seem to have helped as my car was broken into while parked on the verge last night. A bag was (carelessly) left on the passenger seat, so the scumbags smashed the window with bricks- in hindsight, leaving the doors unlocked might have reduced the pain.
Although last night was particularly foggy and the surveillance camera couldn't have got a clear picture, we were wondering if having a top-of-the-line camera installed would help. If we had a clear video of the perpetrators and plate numbers, would the cops do anything about it, or are we just wasting more money?
